I would like to begin by extending my sincere gratitude to the CGP Staff and 2017 Board of Directors especially Cathy Sheffield, previous Board Chair, and Elizabeth Ayers, previous Conference Chair, for their leadership. Because of their efforts we continue to move forward with momentum and a clear vision to serve our members and the broader charitable gift planning community.
As a member, you know you have access to an abundance of resources on the website and in the Link. But did you know there are even more options to keep current? CGP knows you are busy, so we offer various platforms you can follow to stay up-to-date easier . If you’re interested in new resources or a quick brush-up, you can follow our blog, receive campaign updates, join our social media pages and read email communication.
The National Association of Charitable Gift Planners offers an annual individual membership, which is renewed each year on your anniversary date. When you join or renew, you create a username and password that give you instant access to your member benefits.
Have you been on CGP Link recently? Don’t forget the online community, CGP Link, is your place as a member to share ideas, ask questions and solve problems with colleagues who share your interests, challenges and goals.
I always get excited to talk about our partnership with the local charitable gift planning councils for a couple of reasons. One, it’s an opportunity to share the information with members and non-members about our council structure. And two, I can brag on how amazing our local councils are at educating and connecting gift planning professionals.
