    Call for 2021 Monthly Membership Program Proposals


    Central Virginia has talent! 

    You are invited to propose a program session for AFP Central Virginia’s monthly membership meetings in 2021. At this time, we are asking for all proposals to assume that meetings will occur virtually over Zoom.

    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.  

    We ask that you 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? 
    See the program proposal guidelines for more detailed information and a timeline regarding submissions.

    Proposals may be submitted through this Google form by November 6, 2020.


    AFP Central Virginia is committed to Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access (I.D.E.A) in all Chapter activities.
