AFP Fundraising Fundamentals Webinar

Dear Colleagues,
This is an overview of what can be expected in the upcoming webinar. The course curriculum and schedule for each day, with date, time, courses, and names of presenters, can be found here:
Fundamentals is designed to be interactive. You will be invited to introduce yourself in the first class. The instructor will let you know what kinds of things to cover in your introduction. To facilitate interaction, when you start each zoom class it would be helpful if you could rename yourself as full name AND organization name. The rename option should be located in the menu (three small dots) found at the top right corner of your webcam window.
To avoid background noise during presentations, AFP asks that you mute your device at all times when you are not speaking (also found at the top right corner of your webcam window). Please note, any files or handouts such as presenter PowerPoint files will not be distributed until the end of the program to ease distractions. For the duration of the program, please use the Chat feature to submit questions. No question is too small! We will try to facilitate all questions at some point during the presentation or follow up afterward by email.
Regarding devices, you will get the most out of the course if you have a camera and microphone installed on your computer. Not all computers and laptops have an internal microphone and a built-in webcam. You can determine if it has these installed by performing a visual inspection of the machine. For example, a laptop's webcam and microphone are usually located in the bezel at the top of the screen. For an optimal experience, use a device that has these built in or consider purchasing a webcam device that can be placed on top of your monitor (there are products that include both a microphone and webcam) and plugs into your computer to add video and audio capabilities. 
If there is no way to obtain these full webcam capabilities by the first day of class this is not a problem. Please feel free to join by telephone using the options sent in the confirmation email.
Please contact AFP at if you have questions prior to the course.
We look forward to seeing you there!
