As a membership association, ANAFP encourages our members to stay engaged. Doing this helps members not only showcase their expertise in the profession, but it also helps other members benefit from lessons learned and knowledge sharing.
In addition to being a career boosting tool, joining the association's Advisory Council and/or becoming a Contributing Editor provides many professional benefits, and we encourage members to proudly display their participation on their resumes and social media accounts. Below is a synopsis of what to expect by participating.
The Advisory Council is made up of members and volunteers who assist the association in developing ideas for growth and membership expansion. The Council helps formulate a direction for the organization, look at ways to improve member services, and occasionally liaise with patrons who produce products or services that may be of benefit to our members. The Advisory Council is currently limited to twelve (12) individuals.
Contributing Editors are made up of members and volunteers who help develop content (i.e., publications, tools, etc.) useful for ANAFP members and for furthering the profession. All Contributing Editors are credited for their work. Developed content is distributed via the Association's website, newsletters, social media, and list serves. There is currently no limit to the number of Contributing Editors. Active Contributing Editors also receive discounted membership rates.
Members may opt to join the Advisory Council and/or become a Contributing Editor upon signing up to become a member. In addition, you may also notify us of your interest by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
