AFP CPC Board Nomination for 2019
August 8, 2018
One seat on the AFP Board is held by a representative of the Chapter President’s Council (CPC). An election will take place electronically prior to the Leadership Academy to determine who will fill this position. The CPC meeting will occur on October 11, 2018 from 3:00p.m. - 5:30p.m. The candidate must be a Chapter President as of January 2019. The CPC representative to the AFP Board serves a one-year term, non-renewable, in this position. The chapter president who serves as the CPC representative of the AFP Board will be eligible for re-nomination in following years in either an At-large Board or Officer position.
A timeline for the nomination process is as follows:
- August 1 – Call for CPC Board candidate nominations
- September 7 – Deadline for nominations
- Sept 12 - 28 – Vote will be done electronically
Nominees are expected to attend three (3) board meetings a year, participate in committee, council, or task force meetings, and provide financial support to the US and/or Canadian AFP Foundations for Philanthropy. AFP Board members travel expenses are reimbursed per the Board Travel Policy to attend AFP board meetings.

All nominations will be shared with the Chapter Presidents in advance of the October 11th meeting to vote on electronically. All nominees must be present during the meeting on October 11th. The elected candidate will be given a few minutes to speak on their own behalf at this time.
On a personal note, it has been a true honor for me to serve you and my fellow AFP members as the CPC representative. I encourage you to run for this position on the AFP Board of Directors. It is not a figurehead position. As one of twenty-four board members, you will have the opportunity to chair meetings and serve on several international committees. The Association is a leader in shaping the future of philanthropy internationally. Through your service on the board you will gain a greater understanding of how the Association operates and have the chance to truly make a difference in our 33,000+ member organization. Your contributions will have direct benefit to our profession.
Thank you for your service to AFP.
