Chapter Leadership Brief 2.11.2022
Greeting AFP NYC Friends,
According to Forbes, 80% of people admit that they abandon their new year’s resolutions by February. Whether or not you are in that group, AFP-NYC is here to support you in your personal and professional journey as a fundraiser. The Chapter offers a myriad of opportunities for you to learn about current trends and best practices, grow as a professional and connect with colleagues in the field.
LEARN: February kicks off the Chapter’s annual educational programming with a powerhouse panel on donor stewardship- “Donor Engagement to Get You Through Omicron and Beyond” - on Thursday, February 16th at 8:30am. After two years, we are still grappling with an ever-evolving pandemic. Join the conversation to dive into the most effective stewardship practices that are creating meaningful relationships with our donors. You can register for this panel here.
GROW: Challenge yourself this year. Fundraising Day in New York is the largest, single-day conference on philanthropy! With sessions covering topics across our sector, you can easily add to your fundraising toolbox and set yourself up for that next job or promotion! Keep an eye out as registration opens soon!
CONNECT: AFP-NYC has more than a dozen committees and other opportunities for members to volunteer and work closely with colleagues on moving our sector forward. I urge you to sign up at https://nycafp.org/Get-Involved/Get-Involved. Committee work is where I have forged invaluable relationships with colleagues while doing work that was vital to me as a fundraiser.
I hope you will take advantage of all that AFP has to offer!
