July Letter From The President


Happy Summer!

More than 30 members of our chapter are now actively engaged in planning for the AFP International Conference scheduled for March 31 through April 2, 2019, in San Antonio.

This month, I participated in the selection of proposals for educational sessions at the conference. The Conference Education Advisory Committee met at AFP Headquarters and deliberated for three days on proposals and presenters. At the conclusion of the meeting, we had reviewed over 400 proposals and recommended 70 for the program.

The AFP staff and other divisions will also be selecting proposals to bring the total of educational sessions at the 2019 conference to about 100. Because we are the host chapter, AFP has allocated two slots in the program for locally-oriented topics. If you have suggestions for a session topic and/or are interested in presenting a session, please contact me at .

Although our next monthly meeting is not until Sept. 20, we have Board and committee meetings throughout the rest of the summer. If you would like to be involved in National Philanthropy Day, the 2019 Conference or any other aspect of our chapter programs and services, please contact Michelle at to request a volunteer form.   

Enjoy the rest of the summer, take some time to refresh, rejuvenate!
