Today, we sit down with Kent Weimer, our newly elected Chair of the CGP Board of Directors to hear his thoughts on CGP and the upcoming year. Kent has been actively involved in CGP for almost 20 years including 3 years on the board and leadership roles at the Chicago Council of Planned Giving and Charitable Gift Planners of Dallas, where he is a past president. We are excited for the upcoming year and to be led by such a great leader with more than 40 years of experience in the gift planning industry.
Yesterday, The House approved a massive spending and tax package (HR 1158, HR 1865) that includes several important provisions affecting the work of charitable fundraisers. The Senate is expected to follow suit this week, and White House aides have indicated President Trump will sign the two measures into law before a temporary spending bill expires at midnight on Friday.
Storytelling: The Secret Sauce of Fundraising Success is the first book by CGP Chair Lynn Malzone Ierardi, J.D.
