Welcome to the new website for AFPNEO. On behalf of our board of directors and volunteers, we hope that you will take a look around to see what has been happening and what we have planned for 2021. With so much changing in philanthropy due to the 2020 global pandemic, our team has embraced the latest technologies to continue to bring you the best professional development programs, career-growth options, mentoring partnerships, and access to resources across northeast Ohio. AFPNEO is also proud of our commitment to maintaining the chapter's AFP Ten Star Gold Award. This award honors chapters who have accomplished 18 goals outlined in the AFP Strategic Plan. Our board and volunteer committees work daily to ensure we are providing you with the tools necessary for your professional success. This year our chapter was once again recognized as a 2021 IDEA Champion. This designation recognizes chapters that have accomplished many of the key objectives outlined in the Promote Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access strategic pathways.Whether you are a first-time visitor considering membership, or one of our long-time members, we welcome your feedback, invite you to join and participate, and encourage you to engage with AFPNEO.
Pam Valentine, President, AFPNEO
