To Chapter Presidents and Presidents Elect


By now, you will have seen the email last week from Andrew Watt, FInstF, AFP President and CEO about a reduction in force and organizational reorganization that has taken place at AFP.  As part of that, we said farewell to Larry Hostetler and Val Lay, AFP Chapter Services Directors, Joe Roadarmel, Manager of Membership and Leslie Gilding, Membership representative.


Please know that the AFP staff is very committed to AFP and to serving your needs.


In the chapter services area, Taryn Gold, Director of Chapter Administration and Heba Mahmoud, Manager of Chapter Services continue to work closely with me.  We are happy to communicate with you via phone, email or other electronic means. During our transition, we’re temporarily suspending all but the most essential travel.  If you ordinarily send queries or requests to, please continue to do so.  This mailbox is continuously monitored.


In the membership area, Sawanna Foster, Tiffany Oglesby and Mary Muiruri are here to assist you with your needs.  As Andrew indicated, we will be looking to outsource a lot of our administrative functions to be better able to extend concierge-level service to our members.  As always, you can reach the membership department at or (800) 666-3863.


Thank you for all that you do for AFP.  We are looking forward to working with you throughout the year.
