||A message from AFP-GLAC President, Yuri Casco
During 2019 our focus was clear, to make sure that YOU, our member, had a great experience being part of the AFP Greater Los Angeles Chapter. We listened to your concerns, challenges, and ideas on how to improve. We learned from each of you who attended the educational programs and appreciate the feedback provided to ensure each event continues to be a great experience for you. I hope you were able to expand your knowledge in fundraising best practices and the latest trends. But most of all, I hope that you were able to make a new friend at AFPGLAC as I did.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to lead AFP Greater Los Angeles Chapter with wonderful individuals like our Board of Directors. Together we accomplished so much: we welcomed new members, celebrated amazing individuals at our National Philanthropy Day at the Awards Luncheon and Conference, and new partnerships to continue to make a difference in our Greater Los Angeles.
Thank you to each of you, our members, sponsors, and donors for investing in our communities by supporting our chapter. We look forward to continue working with you once again in 2020!
From my family to yours, have a wonderful holiday season next to family and friends. May 2020 bring you happiness, hope, and health.
Yuri E. Casco, CFRE

|February 11, 2020 Mentoring Day
AFP-GLAC's first-ever Mentoring Day!
Have you ever wished for ten minutes with a tenured development leader to talk about your career, job interests or challenges, or a possible mentor relationship? New entrants and those early in their development careers are invited to attend AFP-GLAC's first Speed Mentoring Program. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with up to six experienced development professionals for twelve-minute sessions.
