The heartbeat and grass-roots of the Association, AFSA Chapters carry out our mission and strategic goals at the community level. The Chapter - with supporting services from its Division Leadership, and the International Headquarters - actively pursues the Association's goals by providing a wide range of services, programs, recruiting initiatives and more.
AFSA Chapters are field extensions of the international organization of AFSA. The governing body of the chapter, the Executive Council, is an all-volunteer elected body composed of a President, Vice President and at least three elected or appointed trustees. These officials conduct the day-to-day affairs of the chapter, plan, organize and implement the chapter's activities including its extensive legislative program, account and budget for association funds provided by international or raised locally, recommend members to the Division for recognition and meet the established field operations reporting requirements.
