AFP NYC offers a variety of valuable member benefits to help you further your fundraising career.
News from the President 3.31.17
The chapter is doing better than ever in 2017 thanks to you and to our board members, committee members and volunteers, that include many of you, and with the excellent support of our management team.
Now in my second year as president of the chapter, I’m as dedicated as ever to providing you, our members and constituents, with the best programs, tools, intelligence and support to help empower you to grow and succeed in the profession.
Also of importance and value is AFP-NYC’s advocacy in Albany and in D.C. on behalf of the nonprofit sector.
The work of the chapter is a team effort. We can always use more help and I urge you to contact us if you’re interested in joining a committee.
A number of our programs and practices began as initiatives under previous presidents and I’ve added to them. These continue to be developed, expanded and adapted as trends and forces change. Fundraising Day in New York (FRDNY) is a prime example. Now in its 39th year and set for June 23rd, FRDNY will offer a fantastic roster of sessions and speakers.
Some of our offerings are free and exclusive to members. One of these is our mentoring program that is up and running. We welcome more mentors and mentees. Members Only programs are free and open to a fairly small number that offers the opportunity to engage and ask questions and participate in a dialogue.
Our membership committee is now called Member Engagement Team because it literally focuses on engaging you the members to hear your needs, provide community and to improve the chapter even more.
I’m excited about the chapter’s future and welcome your participation.
