NSW CFRE Study Group
Gain your CFRE credential by next quarter!
FIA NSW is working with candidates striving to gain their Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE) accreditation. We meet each month at The Salvation Army Eastern Division in Sydney and have a discussion group about various topics, which we know are part of the exam. The experience has created a bond between the candidates, some of whom work together and others who became part of the group because The Salvation Army was welcoming of others.
To date, 100% of the candidates have passed the CFRE exam. Be part of this outstanding track record and sign up to be part of the FIA NSW CFRE Study Group. The first group of 2015 already has 10 participants enrolled.
Participants are guided through the CFRE application process. Additionally, the CFRE Study Group operates in a “book club” format. Participants are given study materials to review and present back to the group participants the following month.
If you are interested, please contact Stephen Mally MFIA CFRE at firstname.lastname@example.org or 0430 500 524.
