Advancement services during Covid restrictions

In January, Sandra and I participated in developing a podcast for AASP, Association of Advancement Services Professionals ( While our podcast is being prepared for broadcast, AASP has also created a podcast of success stories and limitations related to working through Covid restrictions.

The result is a fast-paced 25 minute podcast that has encouraging content for all of us who have worked from home and within Covid restrictions. We hope you find its messages uplifting and helpful.

AASP’s special COVID episode can be found here:

The podcast includes clips from several interviews from contributors they have aired already and some still upcoming, including the Billmans.  The folks at AASP thought the one-year anniversary of dealing with COVID’s effects within the advancement community was an opportunity to showcase how resilient the advancement services professionals are as the trials and challenges of the last year are acknowledged.

We hope you find it informative and time well spent.

All the best for a great 2020,

Eric Billman
