Be a Leader. Use your Voice. Get Involved.

Join an AFCPE Task Force!

AFCPE® membership provides you with a platform to help advance the field and create lasting impact. There are more than a dozen task forces with opportunities for leadership and involvement. 

Why join a Task Force? 

  • Because your voice matters! 
  • To develop your communication and leadership skills. 
  • To expand your network. 
  • Not to mention, it’s a great stepping stone if you one day aspire to sit on the AFCPE Board of Directors.

Please consider sharing your skills and expertise by volunteering for a Task Force.

About AFCPE Task Forces

Task forces exist to carry out the activities of the Association and are vital to its continued existence. All current AFCPE Members are encouraged to become active in task forces, and a prerequisite to serving on a task force is being a current AFCPE Member. Task forces may be created or eliminated at the President’s discretion with approval of the Board of Directors.
