Call for Speakers

In our continuing effort to provide the best training and events possible to our members and event attendees, AFP-CNY welcomes professionals and subject matter experts to provide proposals for future monthly educational workshops. We are delighted that you/your organization is interested in presenting.
AFP-CNY’s educational workshops are one of its primary member professional development opportunities. The meetings are held in a hybrid format, when possible, on the third Thursday of the month. 

The workshops provide meaningful time for networking with colleagues in the development profession followed by an informative, and interactive educational presentation. It is an opportunity to delve deeper into topics of interest and importance to the membership and fundraising profession.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Annual giving
  • Board governance, management, and development
  • Communication and marketing
  • Ethics
  • Grantwriting
  • IDEA (inclusion, diversity, equity and access)
  • Leadership building and organizational capacity
  • Major gifts program
  • Planned giving
Please complete the brief speaker registration form so that we may consider your interest and topic. Once submitted, you will receive confirmation and your proposal will be reviewed by the Education Committee.
