Thank You Montreal: An AFP Leadership Academy Reflection

Part of what helps fundraisers be effective at their job is the ability to identify and empathize with donors. AFP conferences are always a great opportunity to network with fundraising peers across the world, catch up with friends I haven’t seen in a while, and take in some continuing education. In addition to the professional development opportunities, AFP conferences are give me a chance to see new sights, try new things, and interact with new cultures.
