Social Media and You – Meet Bryn Warner

October 25, 2012

Bryn Warner

AFP Suncoast has some truly talented members. Our own board member, Bryn Warner is among them. He has joined a growing number of AFP Suncoast members who are becoming presenters and teachers. Almost as if planned, he will be teaching at the Nonprofit Leadership Center of Tampa Bay on a topic near and dear to this blog – Social Media!

Attend either of his workshops and earn CFRE credits while building your personal and your organization’s online sociability:

10/31/12 LinkedIn: Building Your Personal Brand

11/28/12 Facebook: Communicating Your Message

If you haven’t met Bryn, why not shake his hand at the next AFP Suncoast luncheon or attend one of his workshops? Growing your network is so easy in AFP! And, of course, now you’ve seen Bryn’s picture and have something to say to start the conversation.

Do you know an AFP Suncoast member we should feature on the blog? Contact Jen Filla at 727.231.0516 or email her at jen at

Learning from a fundraising icon – Jerold Panas

I am very thankful to AFP for giving me the opportunity to learn from one of the icons in the fundraising industry – Jerold Panas.

I was honored to receive a scholarship to attend an Institute for Charitable Giving conference titled: “The Art of Successful Fundraising.” This conference was facilitated by Jerold Panas, a 40-year veteran of fundraising who now provides workshops and conferences to share his knowledge, create dialogue on the current trends happening in our profession and to help attendees reflect on the impact they are having on their organizations and communities.

Being fairly new to fundraising, I am constantly searching for ways to learn from the successes of others and to build my network of fellow fundraising professionals. This conference allowed me to accomplish both of these missions to the fullest extent.

I feel like I am constantly receiving great benefits from AFP and the Suncoast Chapter Scholarship Program is no different. Thanks for making the scholarship program a quick and easy process with immediate feedback and results. I encourage every AFP member to get involved in a committee, give to the “Every Member Campaign” and take advantage of this great professional development opportunity.
