Duke Haddad-Join the AFP — and Get Off the Bench! : FundRaising Success
Duke Haddad-Join the AFP — and Get Off the Bench! : FundRaising Success:If you desire a career in the fundraising profession and are not a member of AFP, I strongly encourage you to not only join your local AFP chapter but get off of the bench! Within each chapter, there are numerous opportunities to serve in a variety of areas. During my greatest chapter involvement, I was the keynote speaker at our first National Philanthropy DayOpens in a new window event, chair of the philanthropy awards dinner, marketing vice president in charge of weekly speakers, plus other educational functions. As chapter president, I decided to give out little Oscars at each weekly luncheon to members that supported the profession in extraordinary ways.
