The AFP East Texas Chapter has regularly scheduled educational lunch meetings featuring local and national speakers on topics relevant to everyday development work. The chapter also offers additional educational and networking opportunities including member socials, local roundtables, fundraising seminars and a National Philanthropy Day® celebration.
