President's Message

Greetings, Fellow Fundraising Executives,
 
Where has the year gone? It's already November, which means our National Philanthropy Day Luncheon is just around the corner. William Bryant, this year's luncheon chair, has a fabulous celebration in store for us on Friday, November 9th, featuring some amazing awardees. And he's done such a great job that this year's luncheon is sold out!
 
Next, an update. As part of our commitment to diversity and feedback from the chapter, we sent out a survey last month to gauge interest in alternative times and locations for our monthly networking and program gatherings. The results? Out of the 84 respondents, over 66% preferred luncheon programs and the vast majority listed Arlington Hall at Oaklawn Park as their first choice in location. Thank you to those that responded to the survey. We look forward to hearing more of your feedback and ideas on how we can build a stronger, more inclusive chapter in 2019 and beyond!

And finally, some holiday cheer. Since many of us are working feverishly on year end campaigns, we thought we would do something a little different this year. In lieu of a holiday luncheon, AFP Dallas is hosting a Holiday Happy Hour on December 5th from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm at Leela's Wine Bar in Lower Greenville Ave. Enjoy light bites and a drink on us while mingling with friends new and old! Special thanks to our friends at Mission Advancement for making this event possible. Register today!
 
My Best,
