  • 2022 Call for Monthly Program Proposals

    You are invited to propose a program session for AFP Central Virginia’s monthly membership meetings in 2022. Meetings may be held in person in Richmond, VA or via Zoom, and we ask that your proposal please take either format into consideration.
    Our goal for monthly programming is to provide relevant and meaningful professional development opportunities for non-profit professionals. Through our programming, we aim to encourage and support excellence in fundraising and to consider inclusion, diversity, equity and access in all that we do.

    See the full program proposal guidelines for detailed information and a timeline regarding submissions.

    We ask you to please address the following questions as you put together your program proposal:
    • Who is the target audience?
    • How relevant and original is the presentation?
    • How is inclusion, diversity, equity, and access linked to the topic?
