As the Board President for the Central Virginia Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our Chapter!
My fellow Board members and I look forward to getting to know you better this year as we engage in our monthly membership meetings, special events, and other professional growth opportunities. At both the local level and through AFP Global, there are many resources available to you wherever you are in your fundraising career.
This is an exciting year for our Chapter as we plan a return to in-person events, while still offering a virtual option for our monthly membership meetings. For those of you who are not yet members of our Chapter, now is the perfect time to join! Together, we will learn from experts in the field; network with our peers; celebrate the joy of philanthropy; and advocate for our chosen profession.
Below, please find a list of links that may be helpful to you as you navigate our Chapter website:

I encourage you to become involved in the Chapter throughout the year by attending our regularly scheduled meetings, grabbing a cup of coffee with a fellow member, and considering joining one of our Committees. There are unique ways for everyone to be a part of the Central VA Chapter!
I’m also happy to schedule a time to chat with you to answer questions you may have or just to introduce you to what our Chapter offers. You can reach me at email@example.com or (804) 592-3372.
I look forward to a wonderful year ahead!
All the best,
President, AFP Central Virginia
