Chapter Announcements

  • July President's Message

    As I sat down to prepare a message for the AFP Newsletter as your new Chapter President, I began to reflect on past leaders of our local Chapter.  So many of the peers that I have called for advice and support at one time or another, have spent some time in a leadership role for my AFP Chapter. All of these former leaders and volunteers are dedicated to the profession and give back by volunteering their time to help others, like you, in the field of philanthropy succeed.  The friendships you make along your professional journey can, and often do, last a lifetime. So with a grateful heart, thanks to all of you who have undertaken a leadership role with the Chapter. And, we welcome a new generation of future leaders to step up to help your Chapter succeed.  

    On behalf of the AFP Board, I send thanks to Ann Hrabik, past President and mentor, for her dedication to serving you, the wonderful members of the Association of Fundraising Professionals for the past few years. I encourage you to participate as a committee member, event attendee, presenter or Board member to start building relationships that will serve you well into the future. Your gift of time and talent will be appreciated by those who follow in our footsteps.  

    If you have any questions, please contact me at I look forward to seeing you in person soon at an AFP event or activity. Until then, stay well and have a great summer.
