Benefits of an AFE Membership


Our Members tell us one of the most valuable benefits of belonging to AFE is the ability to network with other industry professionals.  Becoming involved in AFE pays off when you need it most.  As a Member of AFE, you will be able to solve problems and find answers to technical problems through a number of networking avenues.


Join a local chapter and network with other professionals in the facilities industry. Local chapters provide programming to specifically meet the local facility's community needs.  Plant and sporting venue tours are frequently scheduled to display what some of the most exicting facilities are implementing as best practices.  Speakers bring a local perspective to topics of interest.  And, of course, by meeting with others in your area you will build a personal and professional network of contacts and friends who will be there when you need help.
