Company administrators on AAFA accounts can manage their corporate profile, roster, and pay invoices. 

  1. Participate in your new member on-boarding. Maureen Storch and Megan Balkovic will walk you through how to access your member-only benefits.

  2. Tell your colleagues and/or subsidiary companies that they're AAFA members, too. Customize and send them our announcement template letter so they can access their individual benefits.

  3. Browse AAFA Solutions - tools and research - for essential resources. Your member-only login opens access to documents and web pages that can help with your job. Note: Member restricted content is visible only when signed into your account (e.g. AAFA Sourcing Profiles).

Connect

Take your seat at the table with like-minded peers by joining AAFA Committees and mailing lists.

TIP:

Meet Two AAFA Staff Liaisons:

Nate Herman: Social Responsibility Committee Transportation Team
Beth Hughes: Customs Team & Trade Policy Committee
  1. Choose which groups align with your interests and information needs. Review our committee and mailing lists to see how they help you navigate the industry and give you a platform to provide input on AAFA’s policy positions. 

  2. Sign up to join! Update your profile to pick your committees and mailing lists, or contact membership@aafaglobal.org with you and/or your colleague's name, title, and email to be added to the roster. Employees wanting to join the Trade Policy Committee must first complete and return this confidentiality agreement.

  3. Mark your calendars. You need to register online for meetings and all dates are posted to our events listing. Can't make all of the calls or meetings? It's OK and not a requirement to join. Anyone on the roster will still receive emailed updates and meeting details/actions.
