2016 National Philanthropy Day Chair
"There were so many positive comments from the 2015 event; thank you to everyone who helped make it great! I'm excited about 2016 National Philanthropy Day and look forward to AFP, once again, bringing a valuable and dynamic program to the Tulsa community.  I once worked with Brenda Michael-Haggard on the National Volunteer Conference in Tulsa, and I know the 2016 NPD committee is going to be fabulous with her involvement. If you'd like to join the committee please don't hesitate to talk to myself or Brenda."  -- 2016 NPD Chair, Rhonda McDaniel, Operation Aware
