Like so many other organizations, AFB has moved its events online to protect our community as the world battles the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re providing key sessions from the 2020 AFB Leadership Conference for free, thanks to generous support from our sponsors, and donors like you.
We miss our AFBLC community, and we look forward to connecting online at the Virtual AFB Leadership Conference 2020. Nothing can replace being with all of you in person, but we’re in this together and we’re making the best of it. We look forward to connecting with you online!
We will be archiving all sessions on afb.org with captions, audio description, and transcripts. Bookmark this page to stay up-to-date as sessions are announced.
