“What Is CFRE and Is It For Me”

First awarded in 1981, the Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) credential  throughout AFP and approximately 10% of Central Ohio chapter members have the credential.  However, many members still have questions such as achievement requirements and applicability to one’s own career path.  We have assembled a local panel who currently have their CFRE to share the “what” and the “why” and to answer your questions about the program and is it for you.

Panelists: Norma Sexton, CFRE; Mike Schmidt, CFRE; Miranda Zink, CFRE


Noon – 1:15PM  Lunch Program open to Members and Guests


“Ethics—An Essential Fabric of Our Society”

For fundraisers, ethical situations may arise at any time.  The best way to respond is to learn now and be prepared for later because thinking about it afterwards is too late.  Columbus Attorney William Loveland will present “Ethics—An Essential Fabric of Our Society” and facilitate interactive table discussions using factual scenarios that can occur in the work of any fundraising professional.


His presentation will focus on AFP’s Ethics Standards, AFP’s Disciplinary System and Process, and the consequences of ethical violations. The individual scenarios will include conflicts of interest, disclosure, expense decision-making, fiduciary duties, investment/tax advice, confidentiality, and accountability. 


To help our attendees learn about and “experience” potential issues, a scenario will be assigned to each table; attendees will collectively evaluate and report their findings to the entire audience. Loveland will supplement and respond to each.


Our Presenter: Bill Loveland has been practicing law since 1982. He is a member of the American Bar Association, the Ohio State Bar Association, and the Columbus Bar Association, where he serves on the Ethics Committee. His community service activities include the Presidential Volunteer Service Award in 2012 and he is trustee, President and Chairman of the Investment Committee for the Ross Foundation, Inc. He is also certified as an ice hockey referee.
