Leadership Opportunities

Getting involved as a chapter leader is one of the best ways to increase the value of your membership.  The heart of AFP SEWI’s work is done through committees. Joining a committee is a great way to meet your peers, network and enhance your leadership skills. With your voice at the table, there’s so much more we can achieve. There are many ways to get involved, with flexible time commitments.

Membership & Diversity Committee

This committee is involved in the identification/recruitment of potential new members and implementation of networking activities for the membership.  It is also responsible for new member orientation and following up with lapsed members.  If you are a “people person” this is the committee for you!

National Philanthropy Day Committee

Help stage the annual National Philanthropy Day Luncheon.  Held during National Philanthropy Week, this high profile event is growing every year.  This even provides a unique opportunity to celebrate the role of philanthropy in our community by honoring top individual, corporate, foundation, and planned gift donors.  There is also an award for a fundraising professional.

Scholarship Committee

Promotes the availability of scholarships to support members’ participation in professional development programs, and reviews and acts on member applications for scholarships.

Sponsorship Committee

Being an AFPSEWI sponsor demonstrates companies' commitment to Philanthropy and helps our advocacy initiatives for the fundraising profession.  Committee members assist in sharing our mission and securing sponsors for our educational programming and National Philanthropy Day event.
