Chapter information

ACFSA is blessed with an incredibly active grassroots organization that involves members in states and provinces throughout the US, Canada, Puerto Rico, and other countries. Chapter events provide ACFSA members with informative guest speakers, professional seminars and continuing education, networking, vendor contacts, and fun "after-hours" socializing.

We expect that this area of the ACFSA website will be constantly growing as more chapters add pages filled with news and events.
