Happy New Year! 2018 is shaping up to be an amazing year for us at the AFP Aloha Chapter, with the theme of partnerships dominating the focus. Our volunteer board is in full gear preparing for the activities of 2018 including professional advancement sessions, networking get-togethers, mentoring opportunities, and collaboration with our Hawaii partners in advancing philanthropy through professional, ethical fundraising. Much more information to come in the next few months.

Your board of directors and Susan Oshiro, your chapter administrator, are here to serve you, our members. And, we would love for each of you to be a part of our dynamic team by volunteering to take on a small role this year to forward the agenda of the chapter. Take a look at some of the committee opportunities available, and please let Susan know if you can contribute your time and energy to one of our committees (email her at

I am most thankful this new year for all of you, for taking on the leadership role within our communities to advance philanthropy through professional, ethical fundraising. When the WHY is big enough, we will find out HOW.
