Member Associations

In addition to joining AFAA National, there are many Member Associations you can join as well. If you would like to join more than one Member Association, that option is available to you as well. Please keep in mind, some of our Member Associations require added member dues in addition to our annual dues. Those dues are for local events that the Member Association has throughout the year. You must join AFAA National to be apart of a Member Association. If you have any questions regarding this, please don't hesitate to reach out to our office. We are happy to help!
