Build Your Skills and Increase Freedom in Your Community
Get Involved with your Chapter
We’re always looking for people to help coordinate programs and events. Lend your expertise to support the chapter, or expand your skills by stepping into a new role. Volunteers have the opportunity to work with the chapter leaders to host fun programs, meet guest speakers, and promote liberty to their peers.
Join Your Chapter’s Advisory Board
Make a significant impact in your community and help grow your local chapter by serving as an advisory board member. Advisory board members work closely with the chapter leaders to plan and coordinate events, engage with members, promote the chapter, and offer guidance and support.
Start a New AFF Chapter
