Join AFS Sections

You now have direct control of your AFS online group membership: sign up to follow any AFS section, interact online with other members, and receive AFS section communications.

  • Go to the list of all section group home pages.
  • Click on the section of interest; if you are not already a member of the group, you will see a "Join Group" button in the upper left corner of the group's page. Click on "Join Group" to go immediately to the group's home page. (If you are already a member, you will go directly to the group home page.)
  • Even if the section is not yet actively using the online group space, you will now be included in the group's member list, which section conveners will use when they email about section business.
  • Be sure to visit the section's public page for information about current conveners and other communication tools that the section may be using.
  • Support the section's activities by paying your annual section dues with your AFS membership renewal, or by submitting section dues at any time in the online store.

Join the conversation! See all section and discussion group pages.
