Frequently asked questions about AFP membership

Does my membership belong to me, or to the organization I work for?

It depends on the type of membership that you join. If you are a Professional, Young Professional, Global eMember, Collegiate or Associate member, the membership is yours and goes with you if leave an organization.

The Nonprofit Organizational Membership for both large and small organizations, and the Executive Circle Business Member or Endorser Business Member belongs to the organization or company. If an employee leaves, the organization may replace the name of the designated member. New members still need to fill out a membership application and sign their adherence to the AFP Code of Ethical Principles and Standards.

Does my membership stay with me if I switch organizations?

If you are in one of the individual membership categories, the membership goes with you if you switch organizations.

What if I am retiring?

If you have been an AFP member for the past 5 years, check your membership renewal invoice and indicate the change to the Retired Member category. If you prefer, you can call AFP membership services at 800-666-3863.

How much does membership cost?

When a member joins AFP, he or she joins both the international organization and a local chapter. Thus, a member pays annual and local dues to the International Headquarters, which reimburses your local dues to the local chapter.

How much are the dues to International Headquarters?

Your membership dues depend on the type of membership applicable to you. Members must self-assess to determine the type of membership for which they are eligible. Prospective members should self-determine the category of membership, and renewing members should review and reassess membership categories. Click here for descriptions of the categories available to you.

From the dues you send to AFP International, the AFP North Central Ohio Chapter will receive $25-$35, depending on the membership level you choose.

How long does my membership last?

Your membership lasts 12 months, starting in the month you officially become a member.
