One of the many benefits of membership with AFPNEO is the opportunity to network with your professional peers and the best way to network is by volunteering for one of our many committees! AFPNEO is a volunteer organization and volunteering on and/or leading a Chapter committee is a benefit of membership.

We need volunteers for the following committees:
