2020 Virtual Annual General Meeting and Professional Awards


Thank you for making the AFP Nova Scotia's first virtual Annual General Meeting and Professional Awards a success.

The AGM, which took place on Tuesday, June 9th, 2020, not only approved the 2020-2021 AFP Nova Scotia Board, but also saw a special message from Fraser Green of Good Works, which we're excited to announce will be a guest speaker at the 2021 Maritime Fundraising Conference.

Next, the curtain went up on our very first Professional Awards ceremony. As our intrepid Marketing-Communications Co-Chair, Alison Clements coined it, "The Stay-the-Blazes-Home Edition". Originally planned as an Awards Luncheon at the 2020 Maritime Fundraising Conference, the inaugural AFP Nova Scotia Professional Awards recognized excellence in our profession.

We're please to announce this year's winners!
