Cory Schmidt, Corporate Relations Manager, United Way of Central Ohio

I had, for years, looked into joining AFP but wasn’t quite sure if it would be worth my investment.  After finally joining in late 2013 it was almost immediately clear that it was!  I quickly got a mentor through the Mentor/Mentee program, joined the Marketing committee, and met a ton of new and young members at a welcome reception.  I have learned a lot about the profession and have been blown away by how quick fellow members are to help you brainstorm new ideas and work through current problems.
