Please join your fellow AFP Mid-America Chapter Members and other local development professionals 
for the June breakfast installment of the AFP Forums.

Wednesday, June 18, 2014
7:30am - 9:00am
Holiday Inn on the Plaza

About the Program
We are pretty good at staying in contact with benefactors in the Kansas City area. 
However, what about relationships outside of Kansas City? 
 Spread across Missouri and Kansas? Nationally? 
How do we do we acquire and maintain donor relationships over a broad geographical area? 

At our next AFP Forum, three long time fundraising professionals 
whose donor base is both regional and national will discuss how they work with donors 
outside of Kansas City. 

You won't want to miss this session!
