MOTM2020 — Home Page

Thank you.

We successfully completed and recorded more than 30 online sessions in three days, only because of the support of speakers, sponsors and attendees.  All sessions are now available to our attendees on the Video Archive page.   We’re also planning to share sessions for free in the coming days, with our speakers’ permission.

Save the date!  We’re planning to return the conference back home to Cal Poly-Pomona Monday-Wednesday, April 19-21.


We’re CFRE credit-certified again this year.  You can earn AFP continuing education credits through  the online Meeting of the Minds.  See and download the credit tracker sheet for this year’s conference.

2020 was the 14th MOTM conference!
Famous for its strong program content and affordability, the conference annually attracts 250+ delegates from the West Coast of the U.S. and well beyond.  With four program areas of concentration, including Annual Giving Fundamentals, Annual Giving Innovations, Advancement Services, and Leadership & Planning, the conference offers sessions for new fundraising professionals, as well as the seasoned program leaders.  

The Meeting of the Minds Conference is a proud partner of the Association of Advancement Services Professionals.

Any questions?  Contact any member of the conference committee.

And consider joining us at the Midwest “Meeting of the Minds” Annual Giving and Advancement Services Conference August 5-7 in Chicago.  We’ll also be offering livestreaming as well as archived sessions, whether or not we’re all there in person.
