This year, two of our officers, Anthony Cefalo and Jeanne Keane, attended the Regional Officers Meeting sponsored by AFP and held in Washington, DC. The meeting was comprised of multiple roundtables covering such topics as, Board Management, Membership Growth, Regional Operations Best Practices, Recruitment and Retention of Membership and Regional Meeting Topics/Speakers. The regional organizations were asked to submit ideas that were successful in their organizations and also to put together a display that shows their association’s spirit. The New England AFP put together a display that showed how we have progressed through the years and the idea submission detailed our transformation over the past year which included our name change, new web site and venue change for our 2015 conference. It was a great learning experience and opportunity to network with other regional associations.
