Our Chapter continues to adapt to meet unique circumstances and evolving challenges within the community, and our commitment to advancing the fundraising profession and supporting our members remains strong.

. We also invite you to become more engaged by learning more about the Chapter and volunteering on a committee
Throughout the upcoming year, the Chapter will:
