In collaboration with our Chapters across Canada, AFOA Canada has developed an approach to enhance the membership experience which is now built on…
The 4 Pillars of Membership:
Pillar 1 – Savings
This pillar outlines the exclusive cost savings AFOA members receive for paying their membership dues. These savings include the premiere “Member Perks Program
” and savings on workshops, online courses, conferences and publications.
Pillar 2 – Fellowship & Networking
This pillar involves enhancing the collective interest of our membership in belonging to AFOA Canada through networking and participating in events. It is about being friendly, inclusive, and creating opportunities for social interaction. It is about helping each other.
Pillar 3 – Thought Leadership
The focus on this pillar is to find ways to utilize the knowledge and expertise of our members in the recruitment and retention of new and existing members. It is important to be aware of what is happening in our fields of expertise (finance, administration, business, leadership) and share current events.
Pillar 4 – Membership Engagement
This pillar involves finding new and innovative ways to get members involved with AFOA Canada. It is about the notion of “actively participating” in AFOA by serving on committees, taking part in opportunities to broaden their experience, or teaching workshops or courses, etc. It means that you are engaged in “doing something"!
If you want to enhance your finance and/or management skills - if you want to contribute to advancing Aboriginal finance and management in Canada - if you want to do the best job for your organization or community - you can be a member of AFOA.
When you apply to become a member of AFOA Canada, you automatically become a member of your local provincial or territorial Chapter, where a Chapter exists, and must pay the Chapter fees together with the National fees. Chapters are currently operating in Alberta, Atlantic, British Columbia, Manitoba, Northwest Territories, Ontario, Quebec and Saskatchewan. Provincial Chapter fees vary and are based on level of services provided.
For more information on each Chapter see AFOA Chapters
. Members are invoiced once annually at calendar year-end for both Chapter and National membership fees.
All membership applications are processed through AFOA Canada.
