About AAFCS Communities

Are you looking for a way to be a part of a network of peers interested in what you're interested in?

AAFCS online Communities allow just that! As a member, you can join one or more Communities. Here's how:

1) First, log in to MyAAFCS

2) On the menu, go to the "Manage Community Connections" menu item.

3) Available Communities will be on the left. Click the green button next to the Community name to join. Once you click the button, the Community you've joined will appear on the list on the right.

4) You can communicate with your fellow Community members by returning to the main MyAAFCS menu, and going to the "Explore Groups-Directory and Resources" menu item. Via Explore Groups, you can access and post documents to your Community(ies), view a list of Community members, and email members individually and as a group.

Whether your area of interest is entrepreneurship, education, or research (or all three!), an AAFCS Community gives you the opportunity to find your colleagues and connect. Click here for a list of current Communities.
