Educational institutions do it . . . charitable organizations do it . . . even public radio stations do it. Let’s do it! Let’s build a development program. But where to begin? Panelists from small to midsize presses shared their strategies, learning curves, successes, and challenges in this informative and practical session. Topics include articulating the press’s value, defining development goals, identifying allies and cultivating partnerships, working with a development office, and developing donor relations. The emphasis will be on working within one’s capacity to leverage resources and community toward a stronger press.
