Chapter Membership

AAFP membership is unified, which means that members are required to belong to the national AAFP and to their appropriate chapter. The AAFP has a chapter for each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Uniformed Services, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. Members are also required to belong to a local chapter, if one exists in their area.

Chapter membership makes it convenient for AAFP members to access relevant information and focused resources right where they live and work. Chapters offer local and regional opportunities to network, mentor, volunteer, and get involved in the AAFP.

Local chapter membership is based on your home or business address listed with AAFP. If you live and work in different counties, you may select a local chapter based on your preference rather than your primary address. Contact CAFP if you have any questions on local chapter membership.
