AHF Comes Closer to Home

AHF Chapters are amazing! We have 11 vibrant and distinct chapters all around the United States. Each chapter’s contribution is as unique and vital as the members, and the region, it serves. 

Our Chapters afford its members a close and friendly community—a safe-harbor for networking, professional development, support and long-lasting friendships.

The Chapters serve are AHF’s ear-to-the ground, advising the national organization on upcoming trends, industry concerns and how AHF can remain relevant and a resource to its membership. The Chapter also serves as an “onramp” to the national AHF organization, and its events.
AHF Chapters serve almost every corner of the U.S. Here is the list of our Chapters, the regions they serve, and the contact information:
