On behalf our 2014 board of directors, thank you for your ongoing participation. We’re encouraged by your involvement and look forward to helping you maximize the resources that AFP provides to fundraising professionals.
Social activist James Baldwin observed that “we are responsible for the world in which we find ourselves, if only because we are the only sentient force which can change it.” Every day we witness the power of one person to provide civic betterment. AFP advances these philanthropic acts of service by enabling people and organizations to practice ethical and effective fundraising.
Though education and a sharing of resources, AFP promote the highest standards of service and ethics as demonstrated time and time again by Central Florida members.
AFP Central Florida board leaders are committed to offering programs which meet the needs of our non-profit community, regardless of your experience level or time in the non-profit world. I encourage your participation and look forward to hearing how you implement the new ideas within your organization:
- Mark your calendars now for AFP CFL educational luncheons (3rd Wednesday each month). These programs provide timely and professional insights to fundraising strategies and best practices.
- Take part in the web conference series, AFP Central Florida offers six a year free for members.
- Participate in an AFP conference including AFP International conference March 23-25, 2014 and the more local AFP FL Caucus Planet Philanthropy in June 22-24, 2014.
- Join the Central Florida Chapter’s email list, subscribe to the AFP Central Florida blog and LIKE us on Facebook to make sure you’re connected. We all get busy! These communications are designed to help you stay apprised of every opportunity to learn, participate and grow as a professional.
