Upcoming Events

I hope you’ve had a good week and I hope you are healthy! It seems like everyone is sick! I started the new year with the flu and it is only slowly going away. Well, it’s this time of year. Also, this time of year is great for planning your professional development. One conference to mark down right away is the AFP International Fundraising Conference. It’s in New Orleans again this year. I was there in 2009 and it was fantastic. One of the entertainment highlights were the Neville Brothers who are a New Orleans staple. If you go and need some dining and sightseeing tips, let me know! A bit closer to home is the two-day AFP Vancouver Island Leadership Program. But there is a lot more to check out, so happy researching and happy planning!

Best,

Phil
