Join Now AFP International

Association of Fundraising Professionals: Southern Arizona Chapter


Over the holidays I read a wonderful a blog post by the talented and ever-so truthful Vu Lee. The blog post was titled “ A letter to Santa from the Non-profit Sector,” and it contained a poignant wish list of ten items for the end of year. Item number eight resonated with me the most. His request was that we are able to take a guilt free break every once in a while. The work we do is hard, and over the years I have come to realize there is NO real “down time” or “slow time” so I hope that you were able to enjoy some time over the holidays to relax and reflect on the awesomeness of the work that you do every day to make our community a better place.

As I get ready for this new year I know that my AFP peers are in this with me—whatever  this year might bring—and there’s a lot to look forward to.  We are excited to host the Statewide conference here in July and of course our National Philanthropy Day in November. I look forward to serving you all as your Chapter President and hope to see you at an event this year!
