The 1st Ever Coal Calamity Awards!
Join the Association of Fundraising Professionals – Finger Lakes Chapter (AFP) on December 10, noon to 2 p.m. at the Geneva Free Library, 244 Main Street, Geneva, NY for a fun and…educational event! Hear presenters share stories of dismal failure, near misses and other misadventures in philanthropy. Presenters will have 10 minutes to share a story about a professional calamity and what they learned.
