During my first few years as a fundraiser, working in a small shop, I was searching for resources that could help me be successful and advance my career. I was fortunate to discover a group of fundraising colleagues in AFP. I began to participate in the many workshops, seminars, panel discussions and annual conferences that were offered and found several mentors who I still reach out to today, almost 20 years later. AFP and its members have more than proved to be invaluable to me in advancing my fundraising skills and my career. Today, it is my privilege to give back to an organization that has given me so much.Meredith Feder, CFRE
