While I typically would wish you a happy Friday, today is not, by any means, a happy day. We are all under threat from COVID-19, and its potentially devastating impact on our health and safety and the health and safety of our colleagues, family and friends. As a leading voice in our community for the professional advancement of fundraisers, we have a responsibility to enhance the lives and careers of our members and our fundraising community. But, we always have to consider the best interests of this community as we assess our engagements and interactions. With that said, AFP-NYC has decided to postpone all of our professional advancement programs and networking events through April 30th. Specific details on each activity will be forthcoming shortly.
