President's Message
Paul Dunne
Dear Friends,

It was two years ago that many of us were rushing down the backstage stairs at the Irving Convention Center sheltering from the tornado that interrupted the 2019 DFW Philanthropy In Action Conference. I remember standing next to Daryl Upsall (one of our presenters) and musing over the absurdity of the situation. And then, last year this incredible conference is cancelled because of COVID concerns. But now…we’re back!

I am so indebted to John Gilchrist of the Greater Dallas Chapter and Renee Underwood of the Fort Worth Chapter as they both decided to continue their leadership for the conference. This is exactly the type of commitment that your AFP BOD provides in so many areas. 

If you haven’t decided to attend the AFP Philanthropy in Action Conference, TODAY is the day!!! Please join us for one of the best conferences in the nation.

Paul Dunne, CFRE
