2018 CALENDAR OF EDUCATIONAL EVENTS

(Note: AFS has consciously made the decision to separate “education” from “certification.”  Listed below are events primarily intended to be educational and business building, as opposed to “getting certified.” We’re certain we have missed a few, so please alert us to any omissions. Thanks!)
