The Space Coast Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) invites you to join us for first chapter meeting of 2015 on Thursday, February 26. Our speaker is John McIlquham, President and CEO of The NonProfit Times, who will present "How to Survive in the 1,000 Channel Cable System."

Non traditional fundraising and income streams developed from program and content provides all organizations--large and small--an equal platform. This session will look at specific strategies and examples of how to generate more dollars and supporters than ever before.

In addition, find out how to build the world's best fund raising direct mail library for $1! Direct mail still retains its leadership as the number one way of raising money so getting donors and prospects to open your message is no different than accessing your home page. Once you have their attention, what are you doing to do with it?

We will also hear from Val Lay, Chapter Services Director with AFP International on the top fundraising trends for 2015.  This is your chance to hear about AFP from an international perspective. You don't want to miss it!
