Welcome to the Association for Financial Counseling and Planning Education (AFCPE) Web site. AFCPE is a professional organization focused on supporting, promoting and advancing the field of financial counseling and planning education. Our membership consists of university and Cooperative Extension educators, military financial counselors, private practitioners, interest organizations and government officials
AFCPE hosts a variety of benefits to its members including a quarterly newsletter, semi-annual research journal and a discounted price to the annual conference. In addition, AFCPE membership provides a strong network of colleagues in research, education, and practice.
Please note that AFCPE membership is a separate division from the certification programs. You are not required to go through the certification program to become an AFCPE member. However, if you are interested in also becoming certified, please go to the Certification section of the website.
If you are enrolled as a full-time student, you can download a printable 2013 student member application. Student members must be studying full time at the graduate or undergraduate level in a course of study related to personal finance (e.g.; personal finance, consumer economics, family economics).
I value my AFCPE membership because it adds credibility to my program, keeps me abreast of what is happening in the world of finance, provides networking opportunities and enhances camaraderie.
