National Edge Conference

This fast-paced, one-day conference is where association fundraising and foundation professionals unite, renew their commitment to lifelong learning, and strengthen the influence of the association community. Join us to learn about and discuss the unique issues related to association fundraisers and foundation professionals.

Annual Edge Conference in 2021
Tuesday afternoon, November 9, and the morning of Wednesday, November 10, the AFG 2021 Edge Conference will be held. Be sure and mark your calendars now. We anticipate a hybrid event with some virtual and some in-person components in DC and/or in Chicago. We are considering “watch” gatherings where you can watch presentations with a group of other AFG members with the opportunity for networking and discussion. We will make the final plans based on what is deemed safe by early November. Remember membership offers discounts for the conference.
