Heather Pfitzenmaier has been named Vice President of America’s Future Foundation (AFF), effective October 3. Her responsibilities will include oversight of all AFF programs across the country, which include chapters and collaborative programs in more than 25 cities and Washington, D.C.
Pfitzenmaier has served as AFF’s Director of Chapter Programs since January 2016 after many years of distinguished leadership of the Heritage Foundation’s Young Leaders Programs. There she oversaw Heritage’s efforts to reach young people including the internship program, campus outreach, and events for young professionals.
She is the recipient of the Young Conservatives Coalition Buckley Award, Forbes magazine “30 Under 30” in law and policy, and “30 Under 30″ by Red Alert Politics. She holds a bachelor’s degree in English and Political Science from the University of Michigan and is based in southeast Michigan. Heather has been the co-director of AFF’s Southeast Michigan chapter since 2014 and led its growth to become a hub for local liberty-minded young professionals. AFF’s Lansing chapter will launch this week, using the southeast Michigan chapter as a model.
AFF executive director Roger Custer said, “Heather brings rich experience mentoring young leaders and staff across the country, and we are lucky to have her on our team. In her new role, she will oversee implementation of a strategic plan that will transform AFF’s programs in quality and quantity nationwide. AFF is going to build on years of success to continue inspiring the Millennial generation with the ideas of free markets, limited government, and personal responsibility.”
