Why? Leaders from across Canada meet once a year to discuss the fundraising profession in our country. This is one of the BEST AFP meetings of the year. It offers an opportunity for leaders to contribute to important national initiatives led by AFP Canada and the AFP Foundation for Philanthropy - Canada. This annual meeting is also a great time to meet other leaders and learn about what’s working in their chapters and how they are dealing with challenges. (Learn more about past retreats: 2022, 2021, 2020, 2019 & 2018.)
