President's Message

Greetings, Fellow Fundraising Executives,
June is upon us, and this month can serve as a time of much-needed relaxation and reflection. And although our donors may be on holiday, there is still much work to be done! Some of the most effective fundraisers use this "slow" month as a time to reflect on FY18, plan for a successful FY19, and engage in professional development.
Good news! AFP Dallas co-hosts, along with the Fort Worth chapter, a world-class professional development conference in June that is easy on practically any budget. Our DFW Philanthropy in Action Conference will take place on Friday, June 15th at the Irving Convention Center. This one-day conference features learning tracks for all specialties and experience levels in fundraising. Plus nationally-renowned keynote speakers Laura Fredricks and Justin Maust make this one professional development event you won't want to miss! Register today and hurry, online registration ends on June 11th!
Also, for those of you that may be considering becoming an AFP member, now is the time! Through June 30th, AFP is offering a special discount of $50 on new professional and associate level memberships. See the coupon below for additional details.

Finally, I'm very proud of all of the "behind the scenes" work that is taking place for National Philanthropy Day luncheon coming up on November 9th, save the date! Our awards committee recently announced an incredible slate of honorees. I'm especially proud that AFP Dallas past president Luanne Samuel, CFRE is our Outstanding Fundraising Executive for 2018. Luanne is a consummate professional and mentor for many in our profession. So please, mark your calendar for November 9th and join us for this momentous celebration.
Until then, I hope to see each of you at the DFW Philanthropy in Action Conference on June 15th!
My Best,
Sarah Elliott, President
