Message from the Chair

October 15, 2014

Each November, we pause to celebrate the philanthropists in our community. I hope that you took the time to nominate someone for the awards we will present on November 19th. We have extended nominations until the end of this week to make sure you all get your submissions in to us by the end of the day on Friday, October 17. Take 10 minutes out of your day and nominate someone - I guarantee you will make their day!

Don’t forget to reserve your table, buy your tickets, and invite your board, volunteers, and donors to join us at The Terraces at Sir Tyler for the 2014 National Philanthropy Day celebration! A special thank you to Hall Powell and Tom Conway for presenting our November program- Assessing Your Development Program. We will feature them at the regular Chapter meeting, November 12th!
