    The AFP NL Chapter Annual General Meeting will be held virtually Wednesday June 24, 2020 at 2pm.

    Members will be provided with Zoom meeting information closer to the date.

    In advance of the Annual General Meeting, 

    Active members of AFP-NL are eligible to serve on the Board of Directors. Any chapter member may make nominations to the Board. Your participation in this process will help make our Chapter stronger and more responsive to the needs of our members and the province’s non-profit community. 

    In addition to the traditional Board roles (President, Treasurer, Secretary etc.), all other members are Vice Presidents responsible for specific portfolios, including:

    • Professional Development
    • Communications and Government Relations
    • Special Courses
    • Fundraising Day

    We have an opening for a Treasurer position, as well as additional members to the Board to assist with the existing portfolios. If there is an area that is of particular interest to you, or you have experience/expertise that you feel would be valuable - please let us know.

    A slate of nominees will be presented to vote on at the Annual General Meeting on June 24, 2020.

  • AFP NL Cancels all PD Sessions until further notice

    Dear AFP NL Members & members of our Fundraising Community,

    The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has brought us to a situation that no one could have ever imagined.  Health and safety of our members and the members of our community are paramount.  For this reason, AFP NL Chapter will be cancelling all upcoming PD sessions until further notice.

    We must act responsibly and in the best interest of everyone.

    We will look at some options for online learning opportunities for our chapter in the upcoming weeks. In the meantime, AFP NL Members can still access the AFP Global Community (afpglobal.org), with articles, resources and webinars and many opportunities for online learning, including the 2020 AFP ICON Virtual Conference (www.afpicon.com).

    These are challenging times for us all, but the strength and resilience of our NL spirit is stronger.  Thank you for everything you are doing to keep our community safe and healthy.

    Sincerely,

    AFP NL Executive
