Important Chapter Updates
Thursday, May 14, 2020 12:00 AM

Dear Members & Friends:

I hope this email finds you well. Below are a few important Chapter announcements.

  • Program Switch: The AFPGV May 20 in-person 'What Happened to Planned Giving' program with John Gleason has been postponed. In its place, the September 24 in-person 'Program Evaluation on a Shoestring Budget' program with Dr. Andrew Aligne will be presented virtually on Wednesday, May 20 at 1 p.m. We are offering this program free to members, and there is a small donation fee of $5 for non-members. Registration is required.
  • Webinars: I am hopeful that you’ve been able to participate in the complimentary Virtual Coffee Connections. These informative and engaging webinars, hosted by Chapter Board and Committee Members, have been focused on topics that we think are relevant to the current times. We are happy to have been able to offer these free to members and have had a fantastic response. AFP Global has also offered a series of webinars at no charge for members. To see these and more, click here.

  • Programming Survey: In effort to continue providing educational opportunities that are most meaningful to you, we ask for your help. Please take a few moments to complete this survey. Your feedback is so important to us and will help inform our decisions for future programming, networking opportunities and membership. Even though we are all in this together, we recognize that we are all experiencing different situations. Your responses would be greatly appreciated by Thursday, May 21.

  • Regional Conference: A reminder that the AFPGV Regional Conference has postponed and we expect to be able to share updates with you soon.

And lastly, I encourage you to stay in touch with AFPGV through our social media outlets, including Facebook and LinkedIn. These are great place to engage with one another, and stay on top of Chapter updates and timely industry relevant information.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss further as to how AFPGV can be a resource to you, please don't hesitate to contact me directly at [email protected].

Stay hopeful and healthy.
