The Association of Foundations (AF) held its 48th General Assembly remotely on 29 September 2020. Over 200 participants went online representing 164 member organizations (82% of the roster).
The event was primarily a business meeting which included a presentation of the network’s accomplishments, the Network Aggregate Report for 2019, induction of new members, and the announcement of the newly-elected trustees.
The keynote speaker, Ms. Cathy Church-Balin of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, spoke about “Leading, Communicating, and Engaging Communities During Times of Crisis.”
The event, albeit held virtually, was a happy gathering of development workers most of whom have not seen each other since the implementation of rules related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
