AFS Is Every Day
Many people hear “AFS” and think “annual meeting,” but AFS is every day, not just in October! Throughout the year, you can participate in our community and our work in ways large and small. (We hope you’ll attend the annual meeting, too, though!)
Be a part of the premier professional society in the world devoted to folklore.
Spread the Word!
One of the most powerful ways to get involved is by becoming an advocate for the field and sharing all the wonderful things we do as folklorists and cultural practitioners.
Join AFS Sections
Join the conversation in any of more than 30 special interest groups.
Even better, you can help shape the conversation! Section activities depend on the vision and commitment of section members.
Volunteer at AFS
Want to be in the room where it happens? You can contribute to AFS activities in a range of ways, from giving a few hours at the annual meeting to serving on a committee that advises on current and future work.
Many service positions are appointed, and some elected. Are you willing to be called upon, now or in the future?
Your contribution supports our ongoing activities, advances our long-term goals, and sustains us for the future.
Your generosity also makes it possible for others to get involved!
Not ready to join AFS? Members are always the first to hear from us, but you don’t have to join to get our news delivered straight to your inbox.
