AFP Inclusion Task Force

We are looking for your input!  The AFP-St. Louis Chapter Board recently surveyed our local members about your member benefits and how to better serve you.  Based on your responses, the AFP St. Louis Board has determined three priority areas for the year, and one of those is Member Inclusion. We have created a Task Force that will work on determining ways to better involve and engage ALL our members in hopes of serving you better, communicate more effectively, and provide more engaging ways to be involved.  If this is something that is important to you, we invite you to be a part of this Task Force. We don’t expect more than 2 meetings and then there will be further ways you can be involved from there if you choose.  Our first meeting is set for February 16 at 5:00 at the offices of NSC.  To RSVP, please click here.


AFP Program Task Force

The board of AFP St. Louis recently identified member programming as a key area of growth for our next strategic plan. We want to hear from you! If you are interested in getting more involved with AFP programming, or would like to share your thoughts with the Board and Program Committee, we invite you to join our programming task force brainstorming session on Tuesday, Feb. 14th from 4-6 pm.  We will be meeting at Pan D’Olive on McCausland for a casual conversation on how we can continue to offer strong professional development for the St. Louis region for years to come. To RSVP, please click here.
