Joining a committee is a great opportunity to expand your network and share your skills to advance the fundraising profession as well as learn new practices from your colleagues. For those members with an interest in a particular sector of the philanthropic community, the chapter offers the opportunity to participate in one of our special interest group networks.

Committees are always accepting new members. To get involved right away and ensure maximum participation as a committee member, please complete and submit your Committee Interest Form.
