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.

Communities of Practice
The AFA Communities of Practice offer high-value shared learning opportunities. We believe that peer-to-peer learning offers a complementary alternative to traditional compliance-orientated professional development. With this in mind, AFA Communities of Practice make a valuable contribution to the lifelong learning needs of financial advice professionals. Communities of Practice focus on sharing knowledge, skills, experience and expertise that far exceed the formal learning requirements of a financial adviser.
Advisers have always been a valuable source of knowledge. Practitioners constantly solve problems, refine their skills, and learn from their mistakes. They receive feedback directly from client conversations and have a unique and informed perspective on the financial advice profession. This knowledge and ongoing learning is captured and refined in the AFA’s professional development curriculum.
If a new solution, idea, or advice opportunity is discussed in a community, practitioners can apply it directly to their business, and those who develop new solutions can share their insights. This two-way process of engaging practitioners and cultivating knowledge is a valued component of the AFA’s professional development curriculum, applying hands-on learnings and insights to strategic directions that are shared with licensees, members and government stakeholders.
