Name: Grace Astrove 
Title: Senior Development Officer for Exhibitions
Organization: The Jewish Museum 


How did you begin volunteering for the Chapter?
I had been working in fundraising at the Jewish Museum for nearly 4 years and was looking for a way to expand my professional development experience and become more engaged with AFP-NYC, beyond just attending programs.

Why did you say “Yes!” to volunteering?
I have always had an interest in the power of social media to create community and drive conversation so when the chapter was searching for a volunteer to manage Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn I knew this would be the perfect opportunity for me.

How would you summarize your volunteer experience?
Volunteering for AFP-NYC has been incredibly rewarding thus far. My responsibilities include creating content for Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, taking photographs, live-tweeting programs, and engaging with digital followers. Through my role I have been able to connect with so many of our exceptional members at programs and through our social media outlets.  

What have you learned from volunteering with the chapter?
I’ve learned how incredibly diverse AFP-NYC programs are and how knowledgeable our community is.

Would you recommend that other members volunteer for the chapter?
