As the school year wrapped up, a few students from the AFP-UH Collegiate chapter refined their fundraising skills at the AFP ICON in New Orleans this past April. AFP ICON really develops professionals; giving them the tools needed to become experts in the sector. The Nonprofit Leadership Alliance at the University of Houston, house the AFP-UH Collegiate Chapter, and it is the impeccable program that teaches students the importance of fund development in nonprofits.

 

Britnee Chuor, a Senior in Political Science and the immediate-past AFP-UH Fundraising Officer, 1 of the 5 students who attended this year’s conference. Chuor says the conference “was an amazing experience, because I learned from nonprofit experts about creating impactful initiatives, inclusive work environments, and equitable opportunities for all communities.” She says:

 

“ICON gave me the platform to connect with fundraisers in the global community, address the obstacles the nonprofit sector faces, and obtain the tools to help overcome them.”

 

Samuel Garcia, Junior as a Communication Major and will be the incoming President of the Collegiate chapter, was another student who attended the conference. He says, “throughout the [conference], it was pleasant and affirming to see an international body advocate and fervently promote the necessary conversations about diversity, inclusion and equity, key qualities of our own Houston’s initiatives.” Garcia was “revitalized and revved up to keep doing my research, weigh my options and really seize every moment you have in front of you.”

 

Students who attended the conference, extends they’re thanks to the supporters who have invested in their young professional life.

 

Students who attended 2018 AFP ICON includes: Karen Beltran, Britnee Chuor, Samuel Garcia, Charity Sells, and David Soto.
