2018 Annual Meeting and Winter Social

Monday, December 10
The Sole Repair Shop | 1001 East Pike Street, Seattle

It's about that time. Chilly weather, friends you haven't seen in a while, and voting on next year's Advancement Northwest's board members. So come on, celebrate the season with us at our Winter Social and Annual Meeting

Come celebrate, reflect on 2018, and consider all the opportunities we took to engage with one another and advance the work we do as development professionals. It's a time for us to reconnect, reflect, and set out expectations for the coming year. We'll also conduct some important business: voting in our 2019 slate of officers and board members. Only current Advancement Northwest members may vote on next year's officers.  


What to Expect When You Are A Mentor (or Protégé)

We recently sat down with Asa Irwin and Nicole Angus, a mentor and protégé pair connected through AFP Advancement Northwest's Mentor Program, to talk about their experience working together and the impact the program has had on their work. If their story inspires you, consider signing up as a mentor or protégé. Read the interview and get inspired! 


Welcome and Thank You!

Welcome aboard to the new members who joined Advancement Northwest in September. We are glad to have you as part of the family and look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event! We also want to thank everyone who chose to renew their membership in August. Your commitment to the sector is greatly appreciated. If you think any of the new or renewing members would make a great addition to an affinity group that you are part of, reach out and invite them to your next gathering. All members can connect with each other through the member directory.
