What They are Saying

"The Silicon Valley chapter is stellar in its programming (both range and quality), leadership, and entrepreneurship. It offers unique programs that other chapters are beginning to replicate and emulate. 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
