About the AFA Annual Meeting
The AFA Annual Meeting (#AFAAM) is the hallmark professional development event that brings together a portfolio of programs and experiences designed to enhance and maximize the competency, skills, talents, and overall effectiveness for the success of our members and those in the field of fraternity/sorority life. Additionally, participants will engage in association business, network with colleagues, visit vendor members in the Exhibit Hall, bid on items in the AFA Foundation Silent Auction, and recognize the achievements of members. The #AFAAM will be hosted in-person in Tampa, Florida; more information about the conference experience can be found here.
