Administrative and Financial Officers SIG 

Welcome to the Administrative and Financial Officers Special Interest Group, AFO-SIG for short! We hope you will find this brief description helpful in deciding your level of involvement with our SIG.

The AFO-SIG was started in late 2007 under the umbrella of AACP as a learning community. Interest from the deans for this group was very high and initial participation was excellent. The group very quickly became a SIG.

  1. Sharing common financial/administrative experiences and best practices.
