Coronavirus COVID-19 Update for AFA Events

AFA Conference & Communities of Practice Events postponed

In light of recent Government announcements around the impacts of COVID-19 we have made the difficult decision to cancel the VISION 2020 AFA Conference which was due to be held 17-19 August 2020. We are closely monitoring developments and will be in touch with members with an update over the coming months. Similarly all face to face Communities of Practice events will be postponed until further advised. Keeping in touch with our community has never been more important so please remember we have our online Facebook groups for Campus AFA Community, Genxt, Inspire and Pulse where you can keep updated on the latest and share resources and stories. We’ll be bringing you more AFA webinars to keep you up to speed so look out for these through AFA news or on our social channels.
