Would supporting an AFP GH Board member with the execution of their portfolio be of interest?
From time to time, our Chapter seeks non-profit professionals to join committees to support the various Board portfolios. Support is often needed in the area of education, events, and in particular for our National Philanthropy Day. 
If you’re interested in joining a committee, please contact Sylvie Rubbini.
