It’s Mental Health Awareness Month and AFP Maryland wants to commend and thank all mental health professionals and caretakers for their efforts in administering and advocating for mental health support.

As fundraisers, we often put our work and mission before ourselves. We encourage our fellow fundraisers and individuals in all professions to remember to prioritize their mental health and find ways to implement daily self care!

Last week our Marketing Coordinator, Alex Wallace, who serves on the board for Association of Fundraising Professionals - North Louisiana Chapter, had the privilege of attending the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) annual conference, AFP ICON, in New Orleans! While there, Alex attended professional development courses, heard inspirational messages from Misty Copeland and Emeril Lagasse, and networked with friends...old and new! She stopped by her alma mater LSU Shreveport’s INAR booth (The Institute for Nonprofit Administration & Research - LSUS) to see some familiar faces, got to meet some of the team at Bloomerang, who we use for our donor database, and made new connections with fundraising professionals from all around the country. Thanks, AFP, for all the wonderful resources you provide!
