April Letter From The President


Happy Fiesta!


This month brings days of celebration, parades, great food and fun as well as opportunities for many area nonprofit organizations to raise funds for much-needed programs and services. We hope this San Antonio experience is positive for all of you who are participating.


Our April meeting is coming up and please note: this month’s meeting is a breakfast meeting! First choice or last resort – this meeting will provide an inside look at the world of nonprofit consulting. We hope you’ll join us bright and early at the Pearl Full Goods Studio for breakfast on April 19th.


And, some exciting news: our chapter has been recognized as a Ten Star Chapter by AFP International Headquarters! This designation and recognition places us among the ranks of the most productive and established chapters in North America. As a bonus for becoming a Ten Star Chapter, the AFP headquarters will grant us access to one of their webinars for free. Look for more info on the webinar date, time and topic in the near future. We extend special thanks to Heather Diehl and our Chapter Administrator, Sara Walker Events, who created, assembled and submitted our application for this honor.


Part of this recognition involves our chapter support of the Chapter Annual Campaign. Your support of the 2018 Campaign means improved professional development programs, more scholarships for local and national conferences and a greater impact on our community. Please consider participating in this important fundraising effort.


Hope to see you on April 19th!


Lynne T. Dean, CFRE

When it comes to ethics, we look to the leaders for guidance in navigating through areas of uncertainty. We rely on them to find the objective that is morally good for the whole society. On May 17th join us as we Explore Leadership and Ethics with Dr. Irene Waggonor, professor of Leadership Studies at Our Lady of the Lake University. She will show us the importance of leadership and upholding ethical standards.
