Message from the Chair
June 18, 2014
Thanks again to Anna Irwin (Cape Fear Memorial Foundation) and Patricia Lawler (NC Community Foundation) for presenting such great information on grants! I know we all depend on grant funding and the information they shared was so helpful! I thought I would share with all of you an email I received after that meeting:
“Thank you for running a great meeting today. I've really been impressed with all AFP meetings I've attended and I always end up learning a lot each time.
Our local chapter of AFP has had a great impact on my life (in a short period of time!). When I moved to Wilmington, I started applying for numerous jobs in the nonprofit sector. I have professional experience and an MPA and started volunteering at a couple local nonprofits, but those things were not enough to help me land a job. While volunteering at Habitat, Kitty Yerkes invited me to the January AFP meeting. After attending the meeting, I began getting the job alert emails. Two months after my first AFP meeting, I ended up getting hired as WARM's Development Coordinator. I am so grateful to AFP because it helped get me in front of people who were potentially hiring in the nonprofit sector, and it got me the information I needed about job openings.”Suzanna McLeod
What a testament to the power of AFP membership! Thanks Suzanna for sharing and we are proud to have you as a member of our Chapter!
