YVETTE HERRERA NAMED PRESIDENT OF ASSOCIATION OF FUNDRAISING PROFESSIONALS GREATER LOS ANGELES CHAPTER
The Association of Fundraising Professionals Greater Los Angeles (AFP GLAC,) is proud to announce that Yvette Herrera of Netzel Grigsby Associates has been named President of this distinguished volunteer organization. Founded in 1968, AFP-GLAC has a legacy of supporting and developing strong philanthropy leaders throughout the area who in turn support a variety of non-profit organizations through fundraising and development. Under Herrera’s leadership, this momentum will continue, with a focus on reaching out to support those who are new to the field of fundraising while continuing to strengthen the education and leadership of experienced professionals.
“The last two years have challenged and changed the way non-profits operate – especially how we fundraise,” said Yvette. “We should not aim for a return to business as usual. We can and must do better. Now is the time to develop strategies and take action to bring to the table those who have been missing – as donors, board members and fundraising professionals. Instead of implementing best practices which can often mean repeating what worked in the past, let aspire instead to implement what’s best … for our collective future.”
