The AFP Santa Barbara/Ventura Counties Chapter is led by a volunteer board of officers and directors composed of professionals from our local community. One of the best ways to build relationships is to volunteer alongside your colleagues in the spirit of fellowship and fun. The board is assisted by many volunteers who serve on committees.  If you are interested in serving on a committee, we'd welcome your involvement! To view the list of current committees, click here.
