New Past President Council
Like any great sport team recognizing their legends, it is very important that AiP acknowledge the past contributions of its leaders. In July of this year, AiP created the Past President Council of all former AiP Presidents. The purpose of this Committee is to provide support and wisdom to the present AiP President and Executive Committee. Also, we have created an honorary title for our Past President’s to use to promote AiP, namely “AiP Chief Ambassador.” It is a blessing to have so much wisdom from our Past Presidents available for our Association to draw upon while we continue to move AiP onward and upward.
Although there are so many other interesting initiatives that AiP is currently working on, it suffices to say that AiP is charting an exciting new growth path. Your AiP Board, and the various Committee members, are leading the charge on your behalf to make AiP the number one association in the world for transforming philanthropy through collaboration. Please check out your new “AiP Updates” emails, which we started sending out in July of this year, to learn more about our exciting new projects in the next few months.
Have a great fall and remember to register for the 2013 Conference ASAP.
Enzo Calamo, President
