Join a diverse & inclusive network of financial professionals impacting change.
AFCPE® Membership is the intersection of financial education, research & practice. We bring together professionals from a variety of financial fields, creating a strong network of knowledge and delivering professional development, resources and benefits that positively impact your work and enhance your career.
Membership Timeline: Membership runs on a calendar year (January 1 – December 31) but brings value to your work and your career no matter when you join. Membership dues are not pro-rated, as many of the benefits are available on demand through the membership dashboard. Membership dues are separate from certification fees.
NOTE: AFCPE® membership and certification are completely separate divisions of the organization. While membership offers additional benefits to our certified professionals and provides a community for them to network and share best practices, certification is not required to hold membership. However, if you are interested in also becoming certified, please visit the Certification section of the website. AFCPE® Membership dues are nonrefundable. Read AFCPE®’s Refund Policy here.
