AFE Professional Interest Communities (PICs)

About AFE PICs

The AFE Professional Interest Communities or PICs provide a virtual chapter experience by offering targeted content and other activities based on the specialized interests of their Members.  PICs also bestow annual awards to their members.  Membership in AFE is not a requirement to participate in one of our PICs.  PICs elect their own leadership annually who steer the activities of the PIC.
