FROM THE DESK OF THE PRESIDENT!
Yes, indeed, it is February already. As President of the Southern Arizona chapter of AFP, I proudly share with you that you will see some exciting changes, updates and new benefits to your membership in 2016. We need your help to make these changes meaningful to you.
What does being a member of AFP mean to you? The Board of Directors has been asking this important question of ourselves for some time as we have worked toward a plan of better communication with our membership and the community at large. What is the value of AFP to each of us as members? What is the value of AFP to the community, the donors, funders and volunteers that look to us for philanthropic guidance?
With a new newsletter and other changes to our communications, you will begin to see a reflection of who we are to each other, to the agencies and recipients that we serve and to the everyman. You will see and hear more from our members than ever before. You will become more aware of the many ways, large and small, that you can expand your service to the community by becoming more involved in the good work that AFP of Southern Arizona does. You will hear of new educational opportunities to be offered in 2016 to help us improve our skills and support each other in deeper, more meaningful ways. Your response to these communications will be a key in helping us keep you informed and engaged. Let us know what you think, what being a member of AFP means to you, what you want to know and how we can be of better service to you as a member of this important organization. We want to hear from you! Don’t be shy – email me at any time at email@example.com. Let’s make 2016 a great year for our Chapter as we open up possibilities for advancement and support.
