Welcome From Our President 2024


Welcome to MACGP. What an honor it is for me to serve this important and impactful organization this year as President. Now in my 30th year of my career, I still feel I have so much to learn and I’m looking forward to a year full of learning through MACGP – with you! My promise to you as 2024 President, is the MACGP Board of Directors will work together to bring you a year of creation, collaboration, and connection.

Creating legacies – No matter your job title, MACGP is here to support your learning and understanding of planned giving so you can create legacies for your clients and donors that will truly live on in perpetuity.

Collaboration – I invite you to join a MACGP Committee this year and lend your time and talents. MACGP is well-known for our educational programs and events. We can’t fulfill that mission without your involvement on a committee. Plus, committee work is often where lasting friendships are made!

Connection – I believe we are all seeking connection in our lives. I encourage you to connect with your fellow MACGP members at monthly breakfast meetings, educational programs, and through our summer and winter socials. For me, life is so much richer because of the people I meet along the journey.

Founded 36 years ago, MACGP is even more relevant today as it was then. I want to take a moment to thank our MACGP sponsors, Board Members, Committee Members, Past Presidents, and Members. You and your efforts are what make MACGP the special organization it is.

With a Grateful Heart,




Robin Rowland
2024 President, MACGP
