This year I was rewarded with the incredible opportunity to serve as the President of our AFP SOCO Chapter alongside some of the most talented professionals who served on the AFP SOCO Board of Directors.
The Association of Fundraising Professionals Southern Colorado is a MIGHTY organization, standing strong for 25 years! This year we eased our way back to some in-person and hybrid events. We came together to host the 16th Annual Summit on Philanthropy and celebrate National Philanthropy Day, where we honored the work of some outstanding fundraising professionals in our community, along with a generous philanthropic small business.
We hosted some fantastic coffee chats, stepped outside the box to bring some of the best practices and ideas to our lunch and learns, and celebrated each other’s company is some good old fashion mixers, boat rides and all!
As we say farewell to 2022 and welcome in the new year, I challenge us all to keep this chapter strong, to keep fighting the good fight for our communities who need us now more than ever, and never give up!
I wish you all a healthy, safe, and wonderful holiday season and new year!
