"We were fortunate to have National AFP President, Paulette Maehara, address the club this summer to a sell-out audience. This record attendance was surpassed in September when the committee presented "A Day with Jerry Panas." AFP members came form Gainesville, Polk City, Tavares and Michigan for the largest chapter meeting in our twenty-five year history." 
- AFP Central Florida

"Your participation made the event our most successful ever! Feedback has been off-the-charts positive. Thank you so much!"
- Kathy Chennault

"Your sessions on fundraising were truly fantastic. Those who attended are asking for recordings and that we please have you back at our next conference. We distributed an Exit Survey to our guests asking for their comments and it is clear by their response that you were great!"
