Welcome - A Message from the 2020 Chair 

Welcome to the Career and Professional Employees Commission!

I am honored and privileged to serve as the Chair for the Career and Professional Employees Commission for 2020. I look forward to working with the AFC membership to increase and promote professional development at each of the Colleges. I will be reaching out to each Chapter and Region to get involve with increasing professional development for our members.

Our mission is to continue to promote professional development and exchange of information among the Career and Professional employee of the “Great 28”.

Please join us as we embark on a new year. In the words of our AFC President – “Looking for dedicated people with 2020 vision.”
