Perspectives Award


    Established in 1988, the Perspectives award seeks to recognize those who have written thought provoking articles that are educational and enlightening to the AFA membership. To be eligible, articles must be original work and not previously published, must demonstrate evidence of research and should include relevant and practical ideas to Association members that support the advancement of the fraternal movement, and must have been published in Perspectives between Fall 2022 and Summer 2023. Finalists for this award are selected by the Editorial Board and then reviewed by the Awards and Recognition Committee to determine a winner.
