2018 AFP Canada Board Approved

January 2, 2018

AFP sends its warm congratulations to the members who were recently approved by the membership to serve on the 2018 AFP Canada Board of Directors. 

In a recent AFP Canadian member vote, the Board slate was approved with 94.4% saying yes, 1.47% saying no and 4.13% abstaining.  Almost eight percent of the full Canadian membership participated in the vote.

“2018 will be a critical year for the AFP Canada Board, which is only just nine months old,” said Mike Geiger, president and CEO of AFP. “The Board’s second year will be focused on strategic planning, as well as identification of key issues and areas that are critical to our Canadian members. It’s an ambitious agenda, but one that I know our talented Board members can fulfill.”

Scott Decksheimer, CFRE, will continue to chair the board in 2018. “Great leaders have stepped forward to develop AFP Canada both last year and now, again, this year.  This member vote ensures that each brings a critical voice to help set us on a path as a voice for Canada.”
