We recognize there is much work to be done in AFA with regards to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We know we must integrate DEI into our association operations and ultimately our strategic priorities. To this end, the board of directors established the Advisory Committee for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to involve the membership in creating a roadmap for the association. 

We were greatly encouraged by the volume of outstanding applications we received, and we are excited to welcome this incredible group of professionals with a wide variety of perspectives, ideas, and professional experiences. This committee of strategic thinkers, along with board liaisons Tara Fuller and Jessi Sheridan, will help us develop initiatives and set priorities for the association moving forward.

Please join us in congratulating the following Advisory Committee for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion members!
