John Elbare Receives Chapter Service Award
In recognition of his generosity, dedication and leadership to the AFP Suncoast Chapter, Chapter President, Marion Yongue (pictured on left) presented John Elbare (pictured on right) with a Service Award at the monthly meeting on March 20, 2012. Thank you, John!
As fundraisers, we might not pay too much attention to what it takes to get our message out online, but we know how important it is to communicate effectively with our donors. An exception, long-time AFP Suncoast chapter member, John Elbare has been paying attention to our chapter’s online presence for more than ten years.
Way back when websites were a “new” technology, he redesigned the website, generously paid for the online hosting, made changes whenever needed and added on all the services that we have come to expect, like online registration and an email sign-up list. The beautiful new website our chapter launched in 2011 would never have been possible without John’s tireless efforts all these years.
Now that John has stepped down as our Technology Chair, we welcome Bryn Warner, who has taken up the technology mantle.
