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 organization's Board of Directors 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.
Board of Directors
The Board of Directors is made up of volunteers who assist the association in developing ideas for growth and membership expansion. The Board 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. ANAFP members who have had two (2) consecutive years of active membership status are eligible to apply to become a member of the Board of Directors. Service on the Board is for two (2) years.
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, and social media accounts.
Members may notify us of interest in joining the Board of Directors or becoming a Contributing Editor by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
