Continuous improvement and relationship building are key to enhancing a person’s career path and knowledge. Some years ago, I was a member of AFP, and I found it to be a meaningful organization to have a ‘GO TO’ team to ask questions or bounce ideas off.
Continuous improvement is a model that expands your mind while examining how, what or when you can make changes to improve your personal profession or celebrate what you have accomplished. I am a cheerleader for Victoria, a member of the great team at ESR, an AFP member, and an AFP Board member.

"Being a member of AFP is important because it offers opportunities to hear and learn from colleagues at all levels in the profession. The membership also provides impactful discussions through professional development sessions and chapter meetings. Lastly, mentoring programs and leadership development opportunities have been beneficial to my staff as they work to grow beyond just specific skill-building."
