Formed in early 2006, the Mid Hudson Valley Chapter is one of the newest chapters of the International AFP. Prior to our existence, AFP members had to travel to the Capital Region or New York City to attend chapter events.
Our chapter provides resources to fundraising professionals who serve approximately 4,500 public charities registered in the six counties in the Mid Hudson Valley including Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, and Ulster.
Our member benefits and activities include:
AFP of the Mid Hudson Valley often works in collaboration with other professional development organizations in the area to organize educational opportunities of the highest quality through pooling of resources.
• Regular web/audioconferences on topics of interest to fundraising professionals, board members and othernonprofit managers. These conferences are provided by International AFP and are hosted by chapter members in locations around the six county area of the Mid Hudson Valley. There is a no fee for members to attend these events; nonmembers are also welcome at a $20 fee.
• Networking events where we can meet and mingle in a relaxed environment with others in our field. These occasional events take place "after hours" at local restaurants in the area.
• Special programming such as a National Philanthropy event and other events with special guest speakers.
