Networking Opportunities at Conference

If you leave the PSI Conference on Philanthropy with only a notebook full of new ideas and insights, you’ve taken advantage of perhaps half of what the conference has to offer. Previous attendees regularly rate the opportunity for networking as one of the most valuable parts of their experience. One of the things that sets the PSI conference apart, and makes it different from any other fundraising conference, is the opportunity to network with individuals who can closely relate to the challenges and opportunities common among Adventist organizations and fundraisers.
This year, PSI will offer three new networking opportunities:
Inner Harbor dinner cruise:

Thanks in part to generous sponsorship from La Sierra University, PSI is offering a private opening reception dinner cruise for a modest fee. Start your conference experience off right by joining fellow attendees Tuesday evening as you all set sail on the Spirit of Baltimore. Take in the breathtaking sunset views of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and enjoy an extensive vegetarian dinner buffet, all while connecting with old friends and making new ones. This cruise is exclusive to conference attendees. However, additional family members are welcome to join. Tickets can be purchased on the conference registration website for $39 per person.
Baltimore Orioles game night:

On Wednesday at 7:05 pm, the Baltimore Orioles will take on the Chicago White Sox at historic Camden Yards, just blocks from the conference. The Sheraton Inner Harbor is the official hotel of the Baltimore Orioles, and PSI is currently working with the hotel to secure a block of tickets to this game. Plan now to enjoy the game (and tasty ballpark snacks). Information regarding ticket prices and other details will be posted as soon as they become available.
Dinner out:

Upon arrival at the conference, attendees will have the opportunity to sign up for dinner on Thursday evening at one of a variety of restaurants in the Inner Harbor. A wide selection of restaurants will be offered to accommodate all dining and budgetary preferences. All attendees are encouraged to participate. However, each must sign up for a desired location to ensure availability. While there is no set fee to participate in this activity, attendees will be expected to cover the cost of their meal.
