Empowering Experienced Professionals for Successful Career Transitions

Statement of Support: 

As an organization that empowers experienced professionals, managers, and executives for successful career transitions, 40Plus of Greater Washington serves professionals of all races and ethnicities. We stand firm in our support of all people who have been affected by the horrendous racist and violent acts in our country.

We condemn the police brutality that led to the tragic and needless death of George Floyd, along with others before him such as Breonna Taylor, Philando Castile and Eric Garner. We also condemn the violence, bigotry and systemic racism that has occurred during the past 400 years, particularly against black men and women in our nation. Furthermore, we stand firmly against discrimination of any kind including age discrimination, which frustrates many of our members during their search for new employment.

We offer our condolences to the family of George Floyd, his friends and loved ones. As a way to honor his memory, we stand ready to work with other agencies and community-based organizations, along with the community at large, to end injustice in all its forms against the oppressed and all persons of color.

Roles and Opportunities for Partnership Professionals

Conversation with GARET TURNER

Today's associations and nonprofit organizations are increasingly engaging corporate partners to advance shared goals and objectives.  Beyond sponsorship, these new relationships require dedicated engagement and ongoing support to ensure satisfaction and a positive return on investment for both parties.

This new type of relationship has led to the development of a new role in associations:  The Partnership Professional.  This emerging field combines skills and responsibilities from a number of association management disciplines, including:

  • marketing
  • branding
  • event management
  • sponsorship
  • development




To explore this new field, Garet Turner, is the Director of Corporate Relations with CASE, the Council for Advancement and Support of Education, will describe his responsibilities, along with the skills and experiences he's drawn upon to be successful. 

CASE serves member institutions of higher education, with training and development, advocacy on a variety of issues and understanding best practices for the commonly recognized disciplines in the field of Advancement.

At any time in this role, Garet is responsible for the development, execution and follow-up for 12 or more educational programs. That involves managing and directing, while also stewarding, in excess of 60 volunteers in varying degrees of engagement. He is also charged with maintaining a budget for each program with total revenue goals up to $2,000,000 and expenses up to $1,000,000. In addition to program management Garet must field, report, pass and resolve issues for the estimated 1,000 plus attendees, that attend these programs.
