Forming a New AFP Chapter

July 15, 2016

AFP is a growing organization adding several new chapters each year. If you have interest in forming a chapter, please consider the following;

• If no AFP chapter exists to serve the fundraising professionals in a particular city or region;

• If an existing chapter has grown so large that its leadership wishes to organize a “spin-off” chapter;

• If the metropolitan area which one chapter already serves is so sprawling that it could adequately support an additional chapter;

• If a local fundraising group already exists and wishes to affiliate with AFP; or

• If a group of fundraising executives feels their needs would be better served by having a chapter that is more local.
