Christmas Event Postponed

Posted: 3 Days Ago

THE CHRISTMAS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO SNOW WARNING. CHECK BACK FOR MORE INFORMATION.

To our valued AFP Members, Guests and Sponsors

Given the impending inclement weather forecasted for later this week (Thursday), your AFP Board has decided to postpone our Christmas event. We would rather have an event that everyone can attend without being impacted by a snow storm.

Our Christmas soiree will now become a New Year celebration on Thursday January 19th, 2017. It will still be held at Hawksworth Restaurant at the Hotel Georgia from 5 – 8 pm.

For everyone that has registered and provided sponsorship, both will be transferred and confirmed for the January 19th rescheduled date without any further action required on your part. If you are unable to attend on the new date, please let us know.

If you weren’t able to attend this week anyway, perhaps the new date will better suit your schedule. We will be re-opening the event registration shortly.

On behalf of your AFP Vancouver Board, thank you for your understanding and continued support.

President’s Message – August 12, 2016

Posted: Monday, August 15

It appears as though summer has finally arrived in Vancouver with warm temperatures expected this weekend and into next week. I hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far and vacations are relaxing and fun.

Your AFP Board is hard at work this summer planning some great events for the fall that will be kicked off by a networking/pub night in September, a luncheon in October about the A,B,C & Ds of Rating Agencies, and of course we are already planning this year’s Christmas soiree … yes Christmas is just around the corner !

We will also be sending out a brief survey to all our members and followers in the next few weeks to gather your specific feedback on how we are doing, what you would like to see from us going forward and find out who may be interesting in volunteer opportunities with the Board. We hope everyone will take the time to give us their feedback.

Enjoy the rest of the summer and we look forward to connecting again in September.

We were all a little worried with the rain that morning but by the time golfers were teeing off, the rain had stopped and the sun came out. It was great success and everyone enjoyed another great day on the course. Thank you to all of our members, sponsors and volunteers for making it such a great event.

While there was something for everyone, special recognition goes to the following:

  • Men’s Long Drive – Paul Voisey
  • Ladies Long Drive – Estela Frias
  • Men’s KP – Al Statham
  • Ladies KP – Jackie Gray
  • Straightest Drive – Rob Nernberg
