National Philanthropy Day 2022 Announced!
Mark your calendars: THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2022
8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Central time - in person!

Radisson Blu, Fargo, North Dakota

May 12, 2022: First speaker announcement!  We are honored, ok and very excited, to confirm with you all our first speakers for our in-person, annual, National Philanthropy Day.  They have been a consistent hit at AFPICON and AFP International Conferences for years and they are now coming to Fargo!
Alice Ferris, ACFRE and Jim Anderson, CFRE with GoalBusters Consulting will be here to present "Fundraising for People with No Time to Fundraise!" Through real-world examples they will share a great training on doing more with less and how to influence investment in your fundraising program!

Of course, thanks to a great local chapter board, this full day will be very affordable (as usual!) and open to members and non-members of AFP - of course our award lunch will be part of the day. 

Registration materials and award nomination forms will be LIVE on our website (right here) on June 1, 2022.  Plus, more speakers to come.
Big things coming all in the name of supporting local membership and fundraising!

    Cold weather around the chapter this week as we enter a great New Year!
    Please accept this short message as a "thank you" from all of us at the chapter.  This has been a challenging year but also with successes from around the area.  Thank you for all of your support to local AFP meetings and training.  We were able to hold quality training sessions and awards again this year at NO charge to members.  In 2022, we are discussing social events around the chapter as well as a huge National Philanthropy Day 2022!  
    Also, it appears that once again we will have local member growth in our chapter!  THANK YOU for sharing the word about AFP locally.  Reminder young professionals pay a reduced dues structure.  Also our member retention was 92% in November, compared with AFP 75% average! 
    Remember all of the resources available at www.afpglobal.org as well on our local chapter website at www.afpnorthernplains.org 
    HAPPY NEW YEAR and may I say WELL DONE!

    2022 Volunteer Chapter President
