Chapter Volunteer Opportunities

AFP Maryland relies upon the talent of its board, committees and members to plan and produce our educational programs and networking events, as well as the facilitation of roundtables, the mentoring program, and other professional development initiatives. Volunteering is a great way to network with colleagues, learn new skills and become more involved in your AFP chapter. We are always seeking talented individuals who can take on various tasks and leadership roles. The more volunteers we have, the better our chapter can meet the needs of members.
