General Membership Information
LAFP membership is unified, which means that members are required to belong to the national AAFP and to the LAFP chapter. The AAFP has a chapter for each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Uniformed Services, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. Members are also required to belong to a local chapter, if one exists in their area.
LAFP membership makes it convenient for LAFP members to access relevant information and focused resources right where you live and work. The LAFP offers local to network, mentor, volunteer, take a leadership role, and get involved in the LAFP/AAFP.
