    Roles and Opportunities for Partnership Professionals

    Conversation with GARET TURNER

    Today's associations and nonprofit organizations are increasingly engaging corporate partners to advance shared goals and objectives.  Beyond sponsorship, these new relationships require dedicated engagement and ongoing support to ensure satisfaction and a positive return on investment for both parties.

    This new type of relationship has led to the development of a new role in associations:  The Partnership Professional.  This emerging field combines skills and responsibilities from a number of association management disciplines, including:

    • marketing
    • branding
    • event management
    • sponsorship
    • development

         
     

    ABOUT THE SPEAKER:

     

    To explore this new field, Garet Turner, is the Director of Corporate Relations with CASE, the Council for Advancement and Support of Education, will describe his responsibilities, along with the skills and experiences he's drawn upon to be successful. 

    CASE serves member institutions of higher education, with training and development, advocacy on a variety of issues and understanding best practices for the commonly recognized disciplines in the field of Advancement.

    At any time in this role, Garet is responsible for the development, execution and follow-up for 12 or more educational programs. That involves managing and directing, while also stewarding, in excess of 60 volunteers in varying degrees of engagement. He is also charged with maintaining a budget for each program with total revenue goals up to $2,000,000 and expenses up to $1,000,000. In addition to program management Garet must field, report, pass and resolve issues for the estimated 1,000 plus attendees, that attend these programs.

    Franchising as a Career, Investment, or Both.
    A Good Strategy in 2017 and Beyond

     

    A Conversation with Faizun kamal

    ]

          

    Are you contemplating various career and entrepreneurial options during your transition?


    Come and learn from a franchise owner and expert why you might want to add franchising to your list of options.  You might be surprised to learn there are over 3000 different franchises in the US that you can launch a franchise for just $50,000, and that franchising boasts a 90% success rate.  Most franchise owners are just like you, wanting to find a safe and proven alternative to the corporate world and start their own business.  They want to control their own destiny and create financial security, but need to reduce the risks by buying something they know will succeed. 

    Come and learn the following:

    1.  How can franchising reduce the risk of starting your own business?

    2.  What franchises have and are succeeding in the DC Metro area?

    3.  Are there executive franchises, or is it just fast food and retail?

    4.  How do I know if I’m suited for franchising?

    5.  Which franchises might work best for me?
