The CoreCentric activity was awesome. Although they were a little reluctant to get out of their seats initially – being doctors and business leaders and all–but once they got going, they got into it. I think it was an eye opener for most of them – even a few surprises for me on some folks. The forms they filled out will definitely help with setting direction for each of them, and I think they came away feeling there are many more ways for them to advance Major Gifts than they realized. Thanks so much.
