    Questions and discussions about new officer roles in leadership or mid-level giving have certainly increased over the past few years. Since many of the new officers hold portfolios, we wanted to explore if there was any data indicating a difference in how portfolios are managed between mid-level officers and major giving officers. In this session, we will look at how we got to this point and how these new roles are important in building a sustainable pipeline. We will also look at initial metrics and data from 150+ higher education institutions to discover trends that could help inform best practices in portfolio management for these new officer roles. We’ll finish with a summary and future research considerations.
