  • Let’s Talk About Donation – The Financial Kind!

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 12/04/2020 at 1:00 PM (EST)

    Attend this session to learn how to strengthen the fundraising and development efforts at your organization!

    In eye banking, the term “donor” typically refers to ocular donors.  While ocular donation makes the gift of sight possible, financial donations can support the work that eye banks do every day.

    Fundraising and development are essential tools for non-profit organizations and increase an eye bank’s impact on the communities and individuals they serve. Although the size and scope of an organization’s fundraising program many vary, establishing a strong development program enables eye banks to raise funds for research and additional services, strengthen relationships with the local community, and develop lasting partnerships and support.

    During this webinar, representatives from four eye banks will discuss the fundraising programs at their organizations and highlight the adjustments that have been made in light of the COVID-19 outbreak. Additionally, attendees will learn the building blocks of development including the various ways to raise funds, the importance of storytelling and tips for grant writing. Attend this session to learn how to strengthen the fundraising and development efforts at your organization!

    Listen to real stories about the situations technicians have found themselves in and how eye banks have worked to keep their staff safe while also carrying out their mission.

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Strengthen your quality assurance program by learning how performing process verification before distribution can be essential to your organization’s operations.

    The session will include:
    • Discussion about the difference between verification and validation

  • Raising Your RQ (Remote Quotient)

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits

    View this session to learn more about living and working in a virtual world.

    We are now living in an exclusively virtual world. This happened fast, and many people are uncomfortable using digital platforms. They may feel exposed and awkward on videoconferences, fail to engage fully on conference calls, or feel disconnected, disoriented, and often depressed while working from home.

    In addition, the current volume of communication through familiar channels—phone and email contact—has increased exponentially but not necessarily advantageously. This dynamic seminar, delivered conversationally to encourage participation by Raleigh Mayer, the Gravitas Guru and senior fellow at the Logos Institute for Crisis Management and Executive Leadership, outlines the neuroscience involved in virtual engagement, as well as physical and psychological implications, the importance of performance when communicating with stakeholders, and the impact of organization and tone of content. We are living and working in a virtual world: We must master the culture. Register today!
