Interest Groups

AFA Foundation

The AFA Foundation encourages giving back to local communities. We do this by working with our charity partners to make a meaningful difference to people in need. This creates opportunities to foster community spirit and respect, by being connected and engaged with the financial advice profession.

AFA Practitioner Member

The Practitioner Community of Practice is fundamental to the AFA. It is a forum for experienced financial advice practitioners to network, share experiences and discuss industry issues and opportunities. As a community of peers, the Practitioners recognise and appreciate the many challenges facing advisers and advice businesses and support each other’s thinking around a broad range of issues. What members value most about participation in this community is the opportunity to interact and collaborate with peers outside of their business.

Leaders Forum

Leaders Forum facilitates great thinking, leadership and collaboration within the AFA and broader financial services community. It is a dynamic community of advice business owners, licensees and financial services executives who draw strength, inspiration and perspective from engaging with leaders across businesses and industries.

AFA Inspire

Inspire is the AFA’s powerhouse for women in advice; inspiring and growing women both seeking and giving financial advice to have an authentic voice in a safe, nurturing environment through collaborating and connecting with other professionals in the financial advice profession.
