Monthly AFP meeting lunches ~ Please consider……….

As our chapter members work in large and small development offices, our local Chapter Board of Directors have purposefully kept the price of a lunch at the exact cost, $12.00, for the past few years.  In charging the exact cost of a lunch, the fees we incur for speaker lunches, member prospects and occasional room fees must be paid by other revenue within our chapter’s very tight budget. 

At last month’s Board meeting, we discussed whether we should raise the monthly lunch fee. Recognizing that many of you do not get reimbursed, we came up with a different solution.  This year we are asking each of you to consider “rounding up” your lunch payment to $15.00 or $20.00 occasionally throughout the year.  In doing so, you will be helping your chapter!  Thank you.
