2020 Conference - Call for Session Proposals!

2020 Gateway Conference on Philanthropy
Back to the Future
Looking Ahead With 2020 Vision

Call for Session Proposals

Deadline: May 15, 2020

The St. Louis Chapter of AFP invites you to submit session proposals to be considered for the 2020 AFP St. Louis Conference on Friday, August 28, 2020.

This year, we’ll use our 20/20 vision to take a look back and jump forward to the future of fundraising. What have you learned in 2020 that you will take with you to 2021, and what would you leave behind? What do you expect to find in 2021? What do you expect 5, 10, or 20 years into your fundraising future? Pack your bags, hop in the DeLorean, and get ready to blast off!

Your input and experience are invaluable, and AFP St. Louis is seeking proposals that reflect innovative and best practices. Presenting at the conference is a great opportunity to share your skills and experience with the St. Louis fundraising community and to advance the fundraising profession.

Submit your session proposal by May 15, 2020. The conference planning committee will review all proposals and a status notification will be sent by May 29, 2020.  

At this time, AFP St. Louis plans to host the 2020 conference in person, but we are exploring virtual options as well.
