AFS News, Did you know...?

Do you want to get more involved in AFS leadership and want to find a way in? Consider joining a Committee or Working Group

Committees and working groups research problems and implement projects, under the guidance of the Executive Board, to address matters of concern to the American Folklore Society. The AFS President appoints members to serve on committees — with the exception of the Nominating Committee, who are elected by AFS members.

Interested in serving? Reach out to Cassie Rosita Patterson at [email protected] with the subject line “Interested in Committees and/or Working Groups.”
