Board of Directors 2017

AFP Charlotte is always looking for talented fundraisers to lead the chapter and serve the mission of the chapter. Serving on the board is a great way to give back to the profession and work side by side with your fellow fundraising professionals.

Our board is made up individuals from different organizations and backgrounds. Most have served on a committee leading up to their nomination, though this is not a requirement. Special consideration is given to candidates who have obtained their CFRE.
