• Workshops

    AFPM is always watching for opportunities where we can be of service to our members. As we see hot topics that lend themselves to our members getting together to share ideas and experiences, or learn about new regulations, etc., we will put together one-day meetings to facilitate the exchange of information. Watch this page for information and announcements. If you see a need that you think AFPM could fill, contact us at meetings@afpm.org and we'll make sure the request is directed to the correct individual here at AFPM.
