AFPICON 2019: Front row at the center of philanthropic excellence
Jevita Brister, AFP Global Diversity Scholar
Who doesn’t like being front row? Whether it’s going to see your favorite act in concert or a sporting event, you’re usually bursting at the seams with excitement and making sure your cell phone is fully charged for pictures! Well, speaking for myself, my battery died but my excitement to be indeed front row at AFPICON 2019 didn’t.
AFPICON was an experience of a lifetime and was made possible through my AFPSEWI membership. I was afforded a seat at the center of philanthropic excellence! While San Antonio’s cuisine may be Queen, what I learned is King! I left full. Full of new perspective and inspiration, I gained valuable tools, new goals, and a tribe of others I can lean on. AFP membership is a gateway to fundraising success and has greatly shaped my path through access to opportunities like the one I was fortunate to have. Thank you AFPSEWI, your support and commitment to growing philanthropic leaders is unmatched and I couldn’t be happier to be a part.
