2017 Fraser Valley Summit: Greater Things!



In March 2017, AFP Chapter Member and Chair of the Fraser Valley Committee, Chris Duffin, met with MP Ron McKinnon, MP for Coquitlam-Port Coquitlam, to introduce AFP and its mandate to educate and promote ethical fundraising as well as to improve effectiveness and efficiency of the sector through education. Chris took this opportunity to tell the MP about the role of our AFP Chapter in educating members about changes in legislation and CRA rules to ensure compliance with laws and to safeguard public trust, as well as our  role in advocating for changes that will further encourage and develop charitable giving.
