Stephen Emerick       

Stephen Emerick has more than 20 years of business, marketing and non-profit experience. As an owner/operator of a small marketing agency in Los Angeles, he worked with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), which led to MADD recruiting him to lead a national youth program and national school outreach program in Dallas, TX. He took both programs from start-up projects to successful operations. In eight years with MADD, his team successfully delivered award-winning resources to more than 40 communities, 10,000 schools and 4 million students across the country. The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) recognized Emerick's success and hired him to build and lead their first ever national corporate alliances initiative. In less than five years, he built a best in class corporate alliances program where his team supported sponsorships, in-kind contributions, cause promotions and media. His leadership resulted in nearly $100 million in corporate commitments between 2008 and 2012 for the organization. After working for two of the most respected non-profit organizations in the country, Stephen Emerick has launched The Emerick Group, a consultancy with experience in developing new business strategies and delivering for both non-profit organizations and for-profit companies alike.

Sue Bailey 
President's Message
Dear AFP Members & Friends, 


Internationally, AFP represents more than 30,000 members working to advance philanthropy through advocacy, research, education and certification programs. The association fosters development and growth of fundraising professionals and promotes high ethical standards in the fundraising profession. The Greater Dallas Chapter of AFP is one of 227 AFP chapters around the world.


Considered one of the largest chapters, we are honored to have over 360 members representing hundreds of nonprofit organizations in the North Texas area. We hope that you will consider membership and getting involved in our many activities, from monthly educational programs to the Philanthropy Day Awards Luncheon, the DFW Conference and the recent Fundamentals of Fundraising Course. I am thankful to the chair and co-chair of the Fundamentals Course, Jessica Weidman and Trisha Dunbar, for another successful year. Whether you are just starting out in fundraising or are a seasoned veteran of development, AFP Dallas has a place for you and we hope you take advantage of all we have to offer.


Invitations to a wonderful celebration honoring some of Dallas' finest philanthropic leaders are in the mail and we hope you'll be making plans to join us on Friday, November 15th at the Hyatt Regency Dallas Reunion Hotel. This luncheon also offers you the opportunity to say "Thank you" to staff, board members and donors in one fell swoop! Our thanks to NPD sponsors: KERA, Clarkson-Davis, Children's Medical Center, Dini Partners, Nancy Ann Hunt, Todd and Abby Williams Foundation and Diane and Hal Brierley. This luncheon is a time for the Dallas area philanthropic community to shine, so don't miss it!

We will be drawing one lucky winner at our October 23rd luncheon program for two round trip tickets on Southwest Airlines (travel must be completed by December 1, 2014). You can make your gift online at and you do not need to be present to win. These funds will give our Chapter additional and much-needed resources to initiate new educational opportunities, offer scholarships and maintain current Chapter services 


Hope to see you at an AFP event,

Sue Bailey
