Monthly President's Message

June 2020
Hello Fellow AFP Members

Like many of us during these unprecedented times AFP-Maryland has heard from our members who have spent many days (and nights) reevaluating their fundraising plans and efforts due to the COVID-19 pandemic. You are not alone. In this challenging time, we continue to push forward at our own shops to ensure funding is in place to weather this unknown storm. As an organization, AFP Maryland is doing the same thing to ensure our members are receiving quality, efficient, and meaningful benefits.

AFP Maryland is busy reevaluating our programs for the summer and fall and made the decision to move our annual National Philanthropy Day event to a 3-day virtual celebration. As an organization we know how valuable your time is and our volunteers are working to make quality programming that will be personally and professionally beneficial to you. We understand the importance of engaging with other development professionals. Our roundtables and affinity groups are continuing to provide strong, interactive content for members to engage with. 

Additionally, as a member benefit, the registration fees have been waived for the next two premium webinars from AFP International on June 10 and June 24 to all members. Please be on the lookout for upcoming webinars from AFP Maryland and hope you will join us at an upcoming roundtable or affinity group meeting. 

Stay healthy,

Kim Weiner
President-Elect, AFP Maryland Chapter'
