Message from the Chapter President, Tim Brown, CFRE
Greetings members and friends!
The AFP South Eastern Ontario chapter serves communities between Brockville and Belleville, Ontario. The chapter currently comprises nearly 90 members from large institutions, as well as medium and small organizations. Our goal is to support the highest standard of commitment, ethics, and professionalism within the fundraising profession. Our chapter is focused on providing members and friends, in the charitable & not for profit sectors, with opportunities to network, learn, and share knowledge and experiences.
We meet regularly for monthly luncheons, where guest speakers provide their expertise on specific topics. Our annual day-long conference in May, now entering its 12th year, provides information by industry experts in fundraising at a very reasonable cost. The monthly luncheons and the conference also provide an excellent venue for networking. This year, we enter the 3rd year of the Awards Gala, which is celebrated on National Philanthropy Day on Nov 15th. The event recognizes the contributions of volunteers and donors, and those whose inspirational work and philanthropic efforts have significantly impacted the lives of others.
Beyond our meetings and events, APF members are connected to national and internationalorganizations that offer resources and opportunities. There are over 30,000 AFP members around the world! Information is also available directly from the AFP websites, but only members have access to an even larger cache of materials and resources through the ‘members only’ portal.
If you require information or support, or interest in learning more about AFP, please feel free to connect with
myself directly, or even better, join us at one of our meetings. We would be more than happy to show you the value of become a member of AFP SEO.
Tim Brown, CFRE President AFP-SEO Chapter
