Speaker Two

Monica Mattioli

Director of Planned Giving, Belmont Abbey College

Keynote: 1876 Heritage Society Revival

This keynote will cover the process of rebranding and reinventing a legacy society that had been dormant for decades. The process involves forensic and marketing research, identifying "current" members and surfacing new prospects, establishing the framework for a contemporary program (cultivation, stewardship), branding and collateral creation, website redesign (Crescendo), multimedia programmatic components, goals and outcomes measurements - all in the midst of pandemic.
