Hello AFP Saskatoon Members and Friends!
It is with great pleasure that I serve as the next President of AFP Saskatoon for the upcoming year. With the support of a newly expanded board of directors, we will continue to live upto AFP's mission statement of advancing philanthropy by
enabling people and organizations to practice effective and ethical fundraising. We will strive to enrich the professional lives of our existing members while opening exciting doors to new members.
Through education, resources, research, mentorship, and the Fundraising Code of Ethics and adherence to the Donor Bill of Rights, AFP provides its members with the tools needed to achieve excellence in our sector. With more than 30,000 members and 230 chapters worldwide, AFP is the largest association for professional fundraisers in the world.
A recent survey by The Chronicle of Philanthropy and AFP reveals how the #MeToo Movement impacts our profession. The results of the survey are disturbing but not surprising. (Click here to read for yourself: https://www.philanthropy.com/interactives/fundraiser-poll) But here's why I'm encouraged: our professional association isn't shying away from this.
Diversity is important to our profession. The AFP International Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access statement of principles includes: "AFP is committed to promoting an inclusive, equitable and accessible organization where every member, volunteer, staff and board member can realize their potential and have their contributions valued." In our local community, we are working hard to uphold this principle. If this is important to you, please get involved. Here's the full statement: http://www.afpnet.org/About/content.cfm?ItemNumber=46546
I encourage you to join our chapter and take advantage of the many benefits available to you and your organization. Your membership opens the door to scholarship bursaries, professional growth and development, and networking opportunities that will enhance your skills as a fundraiser for years to come.
To all of our current members, thank you for your commitment to our organization and your growth as a fundraising professional. It is this commitment that makes me proud to be a part of such an amazing group of individuals. I am looking forward to the opportunity to serve as your President in the coming year.
Stay relevant. Challenge yourself. Continue to work towards personal and professional success.
