ACFAS taps into the talent of its members to lead the organization into the future. Every year, the College brings in new volunteers to provide the energy required to bring to fruition the College’s strategic initiatives. We appreciate how valuable your time is and thank you for considering lending your expertise to support ACFAS and our professional community.
This work happens at the committee, task force, educational program faculty, and regional level of the College. ACFAS committees make decisions that advance to the strategic goals of the College and the profession, expand our education programming and deliver important information that members need to remain up to date in our field.
