Membership Committee

Chairs: Jocelyn Wicker & Andrew Shaffer

Become the Heart of Our Community
As a vital part of one of the largest AFP chapters in the world, with over 400 members, the Membership Committee focuses on fostering connections, member retention, and growth. In addition to organizing the annual member party and offering scholarships for accessibility, this committee is responsible for the innovative “Constellations” program.

About Constellations:
AFP Golden Gate's "Constellations" is a program designed to create affinity groups for local fundraisers and consultants, helping reduce isolation and connect members with their peers. These groups are diverse and can be based on various affinities such as geography, ethnicity, race, gender identity, sexuality, organization type, or sector. They offer an array of formats from discussion groups to support networks, and are open to all fundraisers and consultants, with or without AFP membership.
