DevDay at PBS Annual Meeting - Thursday, May 18

DevDay is Sold Out. Please email us to be added to a wait list. You must have registered for DevDay to attend.


The PBS development community is invited to gather at the Annual Meeting in San Diego for a new learning and networking experience! By first attending the Annual Meeting, development professionals will access the full range of upcoming programming, general sessions, and educational strategies PBS offers and gain important skills at the development breakout sessions.

After the Annual Meeting wraps, we’ll kick off our development-specific gathering on Wednesday evening with a Development Late Night Networking Event. The networking and social event for development professionals, this high energy gathering is a place to reconnect with colleagues from across the system.

Then, at Thursday's DevDay, we’ll present a series of interactive, hands-on training workshops focused on the most relevant fundraising and development activities. These workshops will center around four tracks: Corporate Support, Digital Fundraising, On-Air Fundraising, Philanthropy, and Sustainers.  During these workshops, participants will step out of the “conference bubble,” apply what they’ve seen and heard earlier that week at the Annual Meeting, and create new fundraising strategies and plans to use back at their stations.  We’ll also recognize the 2017 Development Award winners at DevDay!


All DevDay events will be held at the Annual Meeting conference hotel, the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina.

Registration: DevDay is sold out. Please email us to be added to a wait list.
