Prestige of the AFCPE® Member logo

As an AFCPE® member you are invited to use the AFCPE® logo, a symbol that demonstrates to your peers, your colleagues and to those you serve that you are an active participant in an organization that ensures the highest level of knowledge, skill and integrity of the personal finance profession by certifying, connecting and supporting diverse and capable professionals who serve communities worldwide.

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. Read AFCPE®’s Refund Policy here.


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.
