The Association for Facilities Engineering (AFE) is a professional membership organization serving all professionals working in the built environment. Just as in social science, AFE defines the term built environment as the surroundings people construct to provide settings for human activity and interaction, ranging in scale from buildings to parks, often including their supporting infrastructure such as water supply and energy networks.
We bring together professionals who ensure the optimal operation of high-rise commercial real estate, industrial plants, classified and non-classified government facilities, campuses of higher education, and medical centers around the world. Established in 1915, AFE remains the leading technical education and credentialing resource for facilities management professionals. Every day we work to advance our mission to provide tools and resources to enhance the expertise and broaden the connections of facility management professionals worldwide.
