Great Memories, Fresh Ideas from AFP in Vancouver

April 17, 2012

Curious what happened at the AFP International Conference earlier this month? Take a peek at what participants learned and discovered—in their own words.

Amy Eisenstein, MPA, CFRE, summarizes her favorite sessions from AFP Vancouver in this blog post titled, “How to Raise Money Even When Your Board Won't Help!”

Fundraising author and consultant Michael Rosen, CFRE, provided a forum for participants to list their favorite bits of advice and tips from the event on his blog, Michael Rosen Says… in this post.

Fundraiser and author Jan Uekermann attended this year’s conference all the way from Germany and conducted several interviews with AFP participants and presenters. This video from his “Fundraising Podcast” series posted on YouTube features Karen Osborne discussing the ways we can better define and carry out cultivation and stewardship in fundraising. You can learn more about Jan at this SOFII profile.

Reporter Raymund Flandez of The Chronicle of Philanthropy offered a play-by-play of what he learned and experienced at the conference, from the educational to the social to the, well, random, in a tweet roundup housed on the Chronicle’s “Prospecting” blog.

Fundraising coach Gail Perry offers several tips that she picked up at the AFP conference, including how to avoid being a “fundraising dinosaur” in this post.
