Board Nominations

Our board is seeking your advice and guidance on who should be nominated to our AFP Golden Horseshoe Board of Directors.

The Nominating Committee is looking for members who have a strong commitment to the fundraising profession through service to and involvement with AFP, other professional associations and/or the community in general. These attributes, together with demonstrated leadership skills and the ability to reflect the widest possible diversity of our membership including organization size, sectors represented, fields of expertise (i.e. major gifts, planned giving, etc.) and demographic diversity will all be considered by the Nominating Committee.

The Chapter Board of Directors manage, supervise, and control the business, property and affairs of the Golden Horseshoe  Chapter consistent with its strategic plan, policies and procedures, Letters Patent and Bylaws of the Golden Horseshoe Chapter. In making decisions, the Chapter Board of Directors also considers relevant action taken by the Association (International) Board of Directors.

The Golden Horseshoe Chapter Board of Directors consists of twelve (12) individuals who shall be elected by the members of the Chapter eligible to vote. Directors shall serve a one (1) year renewable term, with the maximum of eight (8) terms for a total of eight (8) years of maximum service.

AFP Golden Horseshoe Chapter Members may submit a self-nomination or be nominated by a peer (must also be a member). To be considered for a Board position a candidate must be:

  • a member in good standing of the Association;
  • CFRE (preferred);
  • a donor to AFP Foundation for Philanthropy Canada.


Correspondence from the Nominating Committee will be addressed to the nominee so it is important that the nominator has confirmed with the nominee that they are willing to have their name stand for consideration. All nominees will be contacted by the Nominating Committee to advise them of the status of their nomination. Please include the nominee's resume when you submit the nomination form.

The submission deadline for all completed nomination forms is Friday, Oct. 4, 2013. Thank you in advance for making this process an open search for dedicated and talented leadership for the AFP Golden Horseshoe Chapter's Board of Directors.
