Greetings, Fellow Fundraising Executives! 

Can you believe it's already April? Here's the latest:
I am very excited about the AFP International Conference in New Orleans coming up later this month. For those who will attend, please make plans to join us on Sunday, April 15th, when the Greater Dallas AFP will co-host a happy hour with other Texas chapters. Come by and say "Hello!"
Next, the deadline is fast approaching for National Philanthropy Day award nominations. If you work with outstanding youth, philanthropists, volunteers, corporate partners or foundations, please honor them by filling out a nomination form. What better way to recognize and steward your most important constituents? Hurry...the deadline for nominations is April 16th!
Finally, you won't want to miss out on early bird rates for the DFW Philanthropy in Action Conference coming up on Friday, June 15th at the Irving Convention Center. Register today to lock in an early bird rate to see nationally-renowned speakers  Laura Fredricks and Justin Maust for a bargain price.
I hope to see you all at our next AFP Dallas program luncheon on April 25th!
