    Kelvin Carter gave props to Madison

    I wanted to take a moment and tell Madison thank you for helping me get up and running. Along with her own work load, when I first started, she sat on the phone over 2 hours to help me go through some of the steps, and responsibilities of my new position. The whole time, she sounded as if she had a smile on her face while she did it. Thank you Madison, your assistance has helped paved a way for a successful transition here at AFN!

    Kelvin Carter gave props to April

    I just wanted to take a moment to tell April thank you for selflessly making her self available for my 101 questions, as I learn the AFN way. Her responses are always quick, and she will call to make sure there is clarity when training, or will do an onscreen demo, ultimately, it feels like she does whatever it takes to help others. I wanted to use this platform so all could know, your efforts don’t go unnoticed! Thank you!

    Kelvin Carter gave props to Teresa

    Being new at AFN, and on the other side of the country, Teresa, has been eager, and seemingly always available to help get me up to speed on the AFN way! I thought this would be a great opportunity to let her know she is appreciated!

    Chris Conlon gave props to Cynthia

    Cynthia is one of the best kept secrets at AFN. She always seems to end up with my Branch Relation Questions, and I never have to wait long. She is friendly, concise and follows up to make sure the needed resources were allocated and I am satisfied. Reporting, DU, Marketing, who to call, what to eat for lunch, anything, she always seems to have it covered. You can feel her smile through the phone and it makes her a joy to work with. If everyone at AFN matched her level of care and service, we could get those turn times under 30 days for sure!

    Corey Trujillo gave props to Kirstin

    I talked to my department about the Raving Fans book and concept and the use of the response “My Pleasure” instead of “no Problem” or “You’re welcome”. I noticed that Kirstin has adopted it and uses it consistently in her customer service responses. This is commendable and goes a long way to making our department better.

    Laura Morris gave props to Courtney

    Last Thursday, 2/25, there was an error on the final CD for one of my files that was going to close on Friday, 2/26, at 11:00 a.m. that needed to be corrected. The funder assigned to this file was too busy to talk to me and make the necessary correction. I reached out to Courtney for her assistance. Courtney, without any hesitation, looked at the file with me, agreed that there was indeed an error that needed to be corrected and then immediately took the steps necessary to make the correction. She also took the time to explain to me how and why one of the figures on page 3 of the CD was a rounded figure and not an exact figure as I had expected. Courtney ALWAYS is willing to help me and answer my questions no matter how busy she is. She is always patient and willing to lend assistance. She exemplifies what being a team player is all about and the importance of working with her colleagues for the good of the customers and for AFN. I hold her in my highest regard.
