President Monica Champ asked for names for board and committee positions at the September Board of Directors meeting. There was feedback and suggestions from all in attendance.  The bylaws state that the election of officers should be held at the meeting designated as the Annual Meeting, and this will occur at the October 3, 2019 luncheon.  

Nominations are appreciated and will be accepted at the meeting on October 3,2019. All current members of AFP are eligible for nomination.   We are pleased to present the following slate of officers and vice presidents for consideration:  
  1. Chris Miller - President
  2. Ashli Sims - President Elect
  3. Monica Champ - Past President
  4. Olivia Martin - Treasurer
