Let the countdown begin to the official start of summer which is June 20th. However, I believe that summer is already here...
Cathy Neece Brown chaired the annual CFRE review course in June as a joint effort with the Dallas AFP Chapter. This year's course prepared 25 fundraisers to take the CFRE exam.
Many thanks to Cathy and the following Fort Worth chapter members who presented to the class:
