January 1, 2016 New Year’s Resolutions (and Black-Eyed Peas, Of Course)
Happy New Year!
As Americans, we often use this “new beginning” to set personal and professional goals we refer to as New Year’s resolutions. I’d like to encourage you to use this time to think about some resolutions regarding your upcoming fundraising events.
Start your planning early. Create a timeline that covers several well-planned months in preparation for your event.
Professional Fundraising Auctioneer – If you have not already done so, talk with a Benefit Auctioneer Specialist designated (BAS) Auctioneer. These auctioneers have received the BAS designation through the National Auctioneers Association. Professionals with this designation have received the highest level of education in all things fundraising, enabling them to guide your nonprofit with optimum ways to generated the most revenue at your events.
Celebrate your cause. Feel good about all the money you are raising at your nonprofit’s fundraising event – you are a huge part of its success and deserve to feel good about your contribution!
Southern tradition dictates that we eat turnip greens and black-eyed peas on New Year’s day to assure luck and prosperity throughout the year ahead. Regardless of your tradition, I hope the first day of 2016 is a great start to a wonderful year for you.
Have a safe and Happy New Year!
