Ourselves, Emotional Intelligence (EQ) & the Platinum Rule 
Learning about our own hard wiring helps us have more of an appreciation of differences, and assists us in communicating more effectively. We are emotional by nature first, and then we are intellects. In order to be effective as fundraising professionals we must have a baseline understanding of our own hard wiring, EQ competency, and the Platinum Rule.

Cheri is a consultant with experience in facilitating experiential training programs for team development, motivation, improved morale, personal development, communication, and emotional intelligence as applied to business. She hsas 28 years of experience.

She is passionate about emotional intelligence as related to effective leadership. She holds a Bachelor's in Sociology from Oklahoma State University and a Master's in Experiential Education from Minnesota State University.

Pam Dose: The Pres Says

Pam Dose Headshot

I'm excited about all the things that are going on in Tulsa right now and looking forward to all the Spring events that are starting to take place. 

AFP has a couple of upcoming events in addition to the regular monthly lunch meetings and webinar training opportunities.  I look forward to seeing all of you at these events.  Check out the "Save The Date" section below for more details about the May 3 mini-conference (a terrific training opportunity!) and planning for National Philanthropy Day in the fall.


Please plan to attend our chapter networking social opportunity Tuesday, March 27, when beautiful Philbrook Art Museum is opened to us at 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 for visiting, meeting members and guests, and touring the exhibits.


See you at our monthly meeting April 5th at the Tulsa Garden Center!


Your President,

Pam Dose
