    Segmenting Donor Communications 

    Thursday, May 23
    11 am

    Sometimes segmenting just doesn’t feel worth all the work – or you’re too pressed for time to make it happen.  Join Laura Kruisenga, President and CEO of Kennari Consulting, to talk through the basics of segmenting and the essential audiences to consider.  If you’re sending the same year end appeal to all your donors, the same email communications to your full list after an event, or blasting the same eNewsletter to everyone, join in this conversation to talk about how simple segments can have a big impact on your fundraising success. 

    Location: The MMA Zoom account. You can join via phone or the internet. Instructions for connecting will be sent with your registration confirmation. 

    The session will be facilitated by Lisa Craig Brisson, Executive Director for the Michigan Museums Association.

    MMA Colleague Chat: Working with Volunteers

    Monday, May 13

    2 PM


    Volunteers can play a vital role in an institutions success. Retaining, training and managing volunteers is important to a flourishing volunteer program. Volunteers however, aren't incentivized in the same way as paid staff and as a result working with volunteers can be resource heavy. Join MMA members to share and discuss the ways volunteers are managed at Michigan museums.

    Location: The MMA Zoom account. You can join via phone or internet. Instructions for connecting will be sent with registration confirmation. 

    The session will be facilitated by MMA Programs Assistant, Yitzack Balmaceda.
