AFA began an Emerging Leaders Program in 2013 as an avenue to secure AFA's future. The purpose of the program is to identify, motivate, develop, and encourage emerging leaders to serve actively in AFA by providing hands-on experience and unique insights into how AFA operates and is governed. Emerging Leaders volunteer for a year. With guidance from a mentor, they participate on a national-level council, attend national leader orientations, and serve as National Convention delegates.
The due date for the Region nominations to AFA National is May 16. Contact your Region President for more information!
