Top  Reasons to Join DER
For over four decades, Development Executives Roundtable has offered its members low cost, high quality professional development opportunities.  Our Friday luncheon series has hosted many of the top names in fundraising, including executives within successful institutions of all sizes and consultants who have shaped the field of fundraising.  All of our programs also provide excellent networking opportunities.  Whether you are looking for your next professional position, seeking a new member for your team, need to locate consulting services, or just want to meet folks who understand and care about the opportunities, challenges and issues we all face as fundraisers, DER is a great way to meet new professional colleagues in a friendly, engaging atmosphere.



Need support?


By joining our membership for $60 annually, you will also receive the benefit of a reduced Friday luncheon series rate of $15.  Over the course of the year, this represents a savings of $50 as compared to the non-member luncheon rate.  DER also often offers reduced rates to members for programs we offer or we partner with other groups to offer throughout the year.  


Membership dollars provide DER with a base of funds from which to offer scholarships to our programs, provide underwriting and sponsorships to conferences and other fundraising community events, and help directly support the cost of the Friday luncheon series.


By joining DER, you insure that our outstanding programming can continue to grow and provide you and your colleagues throughout the Bay Area with opportunities to further your fundraising prowess and increase your fundraising success.  Please join us and invest in the future of the fundraising profession.
