The 2021 AFCPE Symposium is going virtual…again!
November 15-19, 2021
Registration opens mid-July 2021
November is our favorite time of the year. Why? Because of the magic of the AFCPE Symposium!
Which is why we deliberated long and hard before making the decision to go virtual for 2021. We know that it’s hard to replace the high fives, handshakes, and hugs that come with the live event. But if 2020 taught us anything, it’s that we can create magic, connection, and community – even at a distance.
Why go virtual again?
Rest assured, we explored all options – in person, hybrid, and virtual. There were several key factors that led to our decision to stay virtual again this year. Many of you expressed that travel was still going to be difficult – due to budget cuts, family circumstances, and health and safety concerns. And while we had hoped a hybrid experience might be a win-win option, it is not operationally or financially feasible for us yet. At the end of the day, the health and safety of you, your families, and our staff is central to our decision.
We appreciate your understanding and support, and hope you will join us November 15-19, 2021. Whether you come as a presenter, an attendee, an exhibitor, or a sponsor, we promise, it is an event you won’t want to miss!

"At the AFCPE Symposium, I feel validated and enriched by a community of like-minded professionals who really want to help people. Most of us spend our time focused on others, but for those few days, we get to focus on our own professional development, learning and networking. It’s a great feeling!"
2021 AFCPE Symposium
November 15-19, 2021
There are two ways to achieve AFCPE member status.
1. If you paid the annual professional member dues of $150 (or $100 for certification candidates or $35 for student members) for the current symposium year (2020), you are entitled to the member registration price. Check your AFCPE membership status at my.afcpe.org.
2. If you attended the symposium the previous year, you automatically received a complimentary membership for the following year. For example, if you attended the AFCPE Symposium in 2019, you are a member for 2020.
The certification program and membership are completely separate. Membership dues are paid annually. Membership dues are $150 for our professional members, $100 for our certification candidate members and $35 for AFCPE student members.
If you have successfully completed the certification program, you will pay an annual fee to maintain your designation ($55). If you would like to become a member in addition to maintaining your designation, you would need to pay both the certification annual fee and the membership dues annually.
Yes! Please remember that anyone who will be attending the symposium needs to register.
