THE DATING GAME: When is it time to say goodbye to a prospect? 

Lori Sweeney of the OHSU Foundation will facilitate a lively and fun panel conversation in response to her recent CASE article "Breaking Up with a Prospect: Rejection! Heartache! No gifts! How do you know when it's time - GASP! - to say goodbye?" Panelists Sarah Nevue, Scott Palmer, and Karie Trumbo will share their humorous thoughts one of the hardest decisions a fundraiser has to make; when it it time to move on from cultivating a prospect who you can't seem to get anywhere with and how to do it in a way that leads to future gifts.
