Mike Geiger Trip

We were thrilled to welcome AFP International's President and CEO Mike Geiger this summer for a day full of learning and programs for our members! 

Here are a few of the highlights from his trip to our Atlanta Chapter:
  • Mike began his day as the featured speaker at August's Chapter meeting on "Beyond Just Fundraising: The Impact of AFP in Philanthropy, the Workplace, and the World". Three takeaways from the morning were: 1. The three top reasons people join AFP - education, networking, ethics, 2. AFP focuses on the value of membership, asking what members receive for themselves, for their organizations, and for the wider sector, and 3. AFP will roll out a new initiative soon to help members focus on their mental health and self-care. 
  • Mike joined members of our chapter Board of Directors and local Nonprofit Executives for a luncheon at the Commerce Club to discuss "Beyond Just Fundraising: Strategies for Strengthening Tomorrow’s Pipeline"
  • That evening Mike and our Young Professionals Chairs hosted an event at Eventide Brewing for networking and a program on "Young Professionals & The Future of Fundraising"

We are so grateful for his visit and for the sharing of his ideas and expertise! See below for some photos from the morning meeting and the evening YP event:
