2013 DFW ConferenceSets Records

A record-setting 575 individuals attended the 33rd annual AFP DFW Philanthropy in Action Conference presented by Grant the Good on June 7th at the Irving Convention Center. The conference also set records with 40 exhibitors and the most sponsors involved.


Keynoter Steve Chandler opened the conference by explaining how a shift in our attitudes and thoughts can help create breakthroughs in our organizations' relationships. He closed the day by offering ways to better manage our time, resources and energy to meet our personal and professional goals. Closing session attendees received complimentary copies of two of Chandler's best-selling books. You may download four of his eBooks currently posted on the Conference website. Many of the session speakers shared their handouts and presentation notes and they are posted for downloading in the same location.


An inspirational question-and-answer session was held at lunch with 2012 Greater Dallas and Fort Worth Metro Chapters' Youth in Philanthrop NPD award winners. Scott Murray interviewed Isabelle Adams, Katherine Adams and Will Lourcey, and their answers and comments were both humorous and poignant.


A VIP reception the evening before the conference was an opportunity for board members of both chapters to thank the sponsors, exhibitors and speakers for their support of the conference. Their commitment helps keep the registration fee affordable and allows conference revenue to support future educational opportunities for both the Dallas and Fort Worth Chapters.

Conference Chair Judy Wright of the Greater Dallas Chapter had one final thought before she turns over leadership to Nancy Swartz of the Fort Worth Metro Chapter to begin planning next year's conference. "It was an honor to serve as the 2013 DFW Philanthropy in Action Conference Chair," said Wright. "The conference was an excellent source of professional development for fundraisers throughout our region."


If you are interested in serving on the Planning Committee or on a subcommittee, contact Nancy at this summer as preparations for 2014 will begin soon.

Sue Bailey 
President's Message

Dear AFP Friends,


Summer may slow many things down in July but not the National Philanthropy Day Awards Committee, chaired by past recipient David Krause and his amazing team of past honorees. They have read and evaluated a large number of nominations to determine who will be honored at the 2013 National Philanthropy Luncheon at the Hyatt Regency Reunion on Friday, November 15th. Be on the lookout for an exciting email announcement of the 2013 honorees and information about how to purchase seats and/or tables for one of the Dallas philanthropy community's premier events of the year.
Summer may not be here in full force, yet, but by the end of July, 100 degree-plus days may be business as usual. So how do fundraisers survive the Texas heat? We have a party to toast and welcome our new and renewing AFP members! Come network, catch up with friends, share news of your accomplishments and brainstorm with us as we plan our AFP fall activities. Mark your calendars for Tuesday, July 30th from 5 to 7:30 at the beautiful Hotel Palomar's Central 214 lounge for a Greater Dallas AFP Summer Happy Hour. Your first beverage is on us! All you have to do is RSVP.

I hope to see you there!

Sue Bailey
