What They are Saying

"The Silicon Valley chapter is stellar in its programming (both range and quality), leadership, and entrepreneurship.

Most chapter members struggle to find value in their membership; Silicon Valley Chapter's members struggle to figure out how to take advantage of all the value that's offered."

~Larry Hostetler, Association of Fundraising Professionals Director, Chapter Services, Western U.S., Pennsylvania, North & South Carolina
