AFIA Events

Like all businesses we are responding to the changes and challenges that we are all currently faced with. In light of COVID-19, AFIA has pivoted and significantly changed our delivery model, notably in relation to our traditional offering face-to-face events and education. To continue to provide value to members, we have transitioned our events program to a virtual platform. This is not only to ensure the health and safety of the broader community, but the continued professional development of our members.

Our online forums will continue to cover content on emerging topics, evolving issues, and business opportunities across the industry. We will be offering a range of forums to learn, connect and grow including virtual workshops and masterclasses, webinars, participatory online Q&A's and informative podcasts.

We appreciate your understanding as we build these programs – we are excited about the opportunity to bring new ways to connect with you during these uncertain times.
