Changes to ACFRE Certification Process

AFP Greater Dallas ChapterFor those of us who don't even have our CFRE (Certifed Fundraising Executive designation) yet, this is likely a lifetime of planning away... but it's good to know.

For those of you who DO have your CFRE and would be interested in the Advanced Certified Fundraising Executive designation, this likely comes as great news: reports in their article What Senior Fund Raisers Need to Know:

The Association of Fundraising Professionals this month announced that it is revising the certification examination for its highest credential, known as the Advanced Certified Fundraising Executive designation.No longer will fund raisers seeking advanced certification be expected to answer questions on the exam about federal tax laws or bequests and other types of planned gifts.
For those of you who are in Dallas and who are interested in taking the CFRE, a few of us are organizing a regular study group for a few Tuesdays prior to the AFP DFW Philanthropy Conference 2008 and the CFRE Review Course. We're meeting at the Center for Nonprofit Management from 5:30 - 7:00 on Tuesday June 3 and Tuesday June 10. Let me know if you're interested in joining us!
