AFF is excited to announce the launch of our next chapter in Nashville, TN. Currently active in 27 cities, including Dallas, Pittsburgh, New York, San Francisco, Detroit, and Washington, D.C, AFF’s newest chapter will bring together young professionals across the greater Nashville area. As the nation’s leading network of liberty-minded young professionals, AFF recruits and cultivates young professionals to become lifelong, effective advocates for liberty. AFF Nashville will hold regular gatherings for networking, policy discussions and debates, and other unique events and opportunities. Additional professional development programs are offered throughout the year including webinars, public speaking training, and writing training.
Each chapter event will be cosponsored by the Beacon Center of Tennessee, whose mission is to empower Tennesseans to reclaim control of their lives, so that they can freely pursue their version of the American Dream. The Beacon Center brings years of policy and research experience for the great state of Tennessee. With the launch of their New Wataugans, the Beacon Center’s membership society for young professionals, this partnership will complement their existing programs and serve to extend their outreach to more Millennials across the state. The New Wataugans’ mission is to advance free market ideas among young professionals by providing networking opportunities and forums to discuss policy ideas and public affairs. Future events will be combined, which will provide for more robust event capabilities. This will grow the liberty movement in Nashville by expanding opportunities for policy discussion, networking, and professional development offered to the next generation of leaders.
Hannah Cox, the Beacon Center’s Outreach Coordinator, will serve as the inaugural AFF Nashville Chapter Leader. She says, “We are thrilled to partner with America’s Future Foundation as we continue to expand our Young Professionals Society and provide a vitally important networking opportunity for Nashville’s rising thought-leaders. This partnership will provide connections that reach outside of our state and better empower our members as they seek to advance liberty in their own fields.” AFF’s Vice President Heather Pfitzenmaier adds, “This launch will provide a platform for discussion, networking, and engagement, and spread liberty across Nashville and Tennessee. We are excited for our new partnership with the Beacon Center and to have Hannah leading the charge in Nashville.”
