Volunteers are the heart of AFA. It is through the strength and commitment of our volunteers that the association remains responsive to its membership. AFA volunteers are an essential vehicle for identifying the opportunities and challenges facing the fraternity and sorority profession. Through our volunteer management program, leaders from all aspects of fraternity and sorority advising are brought together to help AFA make the best decisions in moving forward.
