"CRD has been the most beneficial source of professional development in 10 years in resource development and advancement. I have benefitted from attending the annual
CRD conference, the Resource Development Boot Camp, and participating in webinars. Most importantly, the sharing and networking on the CRD listserv has enabled me to
learn, grow, and develop as a fundraising professional. Becoming a member of CRD has been the best investment in my professional career."
