Message from the President
I hope that everyone has been enjoying this sunny and warm July. For many of us, July is the beginning of a new fiscal year and we have the opportunity to step back briefly, gain perspective on the previous year, and implement plans to succeed at our goals in the year to come.
Jennifer O’Rourke, CFRE, VAFRE President
Mark your calendar and make plans to join VAFRE for our regularly scheduled lunch meetings:
Details will be posted on the Events page of the website as they become available.
VAFRE members who would like to prepay for all of their meetings may purchase a Season Pass. A Season Pass covers all regular meetings from September 2019 through June 2020, including the monthly luncheons and the Awards luncheon.*
The Season Pass allows members the convenience of one annual payment for VAFRE events at a discounted rate of $190.00 - that's $30 less than paying as you register for each event, or like getting to attend the Awards luncheon for free! Members may also send another staff person in their place if they are unable to attend a meeting (simply contact our offices to register your substitute).
ADDED BONUS: Season Pass holders may register one guest to attend any one regular monthly meeting (excludes Awards luncheon and Extended sessions) at no additional charge. That's an additional savings of $30!
*VAFRE reserves the right to charge Season Pass holders for any additional events that may be scheduled.
Please note: the Season Pass is available to members only. You must be logged in to register for this option.
Part ● ner : one that shares
Are you new to fund development or would you like to enhance your professional skill sets? If you answered “YES’ then VAFRE has great news for you!
The Professional Partnership Program (P3), now entering it's seventh year, offers VAFRE members the opportunity for small groups (the Partners) to meet a minimum of four times with two highly experienced facilitators (the Leaders) between October and June.
The Professional Partnership Program will encourage discussion and comment on job-related concerns of greatest interest to each group (identified by each participant completing an application detailing their interest and experience). Issues and topics for each session will be solicited in advance and facilitated by the Leaders.
Register by end of day September 11th to join this year's class. (You must be logged in to access this event.)
Thanks to Fahrenheit Advisors for their sponsorship of the P3 program.
