Do you want to transform Michigan into a place where liberty thrives? Are you looking to network, learn from like-minded young professionals, and discuss key issues affecting our state and country? AFF Detroit is a professional development network for individuals who believe in the power of personal liberty, entrepreneurship, and innovation–channeled through free markets–to promote positive social change. The third Wednesday of each month, we come together for panels, policy discussions, happy hours, and networking.

Heather Pfitzenmaier

Heather Pfitzenmaier is AFF's full-time executive vice president and leader of the Detroit chapter. She oversees AFF's programs nationwide. Pfitzenmaier previously served as director of the Young Leaders Program, and earlier as intern coordinator, at the Heritage Foundation from 2007-2015. 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. She reports, “Launching and leading the Detroit chapter has been an incredible experience to bring together liberty-loving young professionals from across our great state. Without your support, we wouldn’t be able to make the impact we have – and hope to continue to do so – in our community where liberty-minded young people come together to learn ideas and skills, but also improve Michigan by offering long-term free market solutions."
