The AFP WI - Upper Mississippi Valley Chapter has a couple of great programs in the next two months that you will not want to miss.
First, our tradition of a joint meeting with the AFP MN - Southern Chapter continues on Tuesday, June 20, at the Minnesota Marine Art Museum. We will meet at 3:00 p.m. with opportunities to network, tour the museum, learn from a talented professional, and stay for Mississippi Sippin'. Teresa Westrich, a marketing and communications strategist from La Crosse, will present the topic, "Building Brand from the Inside Out." Teresa will reveal simple ways internal branding is being put to work by YWCA La Crosse and other organizations to drive employee engagement and strengthen brands. Cost to attend is $15 for AFP members and $20 for AFP non-members.
On Thursday, July 20, the UMV Chapter is sponsoring a full-day seminar featuring Simone Joyaux. Simone is among the world's (yes, world's) best nonprofit consultants with a depth of expertise in building strong boards. The program is tentative, but you will want to be sure to save this date and plan to attend and invite your board and leadership to attend as well. The morning session is tentatively, “Tough Talk about Boards – There’s a lot of stuff you don’t know” and the afternoon, “Boards and Fundraising."
Finally, how to save some money - for those who have yet to become a member of the largest professional association of fundraisers, there are multiple ways to join. If you have never been an AFP member before, you can save $50 on a professional membership if you join between now and June 30. Simply use the code JUNE2016.
