AFP International 2016 was a phenomenal experience. I’m very impressed with the organization of the Chamberlain Scholarship, and particularly appreciated the LinkedIn page for scholars which served as a platform for connecting before the conference. Through it, I found a roommate and had someone to navigate the conference with from day one, which was extremely beneficial. The workshops I attended have already helped in my professional development. One workshop in particular was very timely and applicable in my volunteer work with a local nonprofit, as I’ve now shared with the board the value of a monthly giving program and we are working on a roll out plan. I’m profoundly grateful for the generosity that provided me the opportunity to attend this fantastic conference.
