The CFRE credential "identifies for the public and for employers those individuals who possess the knowledge, skills, and commitment to perform fundraising duties in an effective and ethical manner," according to CFRE international president  and CEO Eva E. Aldrich. There are over 7,200 professionals around the world who have earned this designation.

Claudia TontiReminiscent of the former "lunch lessons" the business communication department hosted for several years, 47 House has created a similar program whereby students can learn from professionals in the communication field. Evening Coffee Chats will take place over the next few months, as the club leads up to the annual business mixer, called BizMix, a networking event that takes place annually in March. 

Kicking off the series of Coffee Chats is alum Claudia Tonti, who serves as the marketing and public relations coordinator at The Modell Lyric Performing Arts Center in Baltimore. This virtual event will take place the evening of Thursday, November 12, from 7 p.m. - 8 p.m.
