What is ANFP's Member Appreciation Week?
ANFP is grateful for its 14,000 members. To show appreciation for its members, ANFP has designated April 2 - 6, 2018, as Member Appreciation Week. During this special week, ANFP members will receive special discounts, be entered into raffles, and will have the opportunity to enter contests for great prizes. To see each day's activities from last year's Member Appreciation Week, see the schedule below.
"Member Appreciation week is a time when I celebrate my certification, the work I put into it, and the pride I take in my work. ANFP's efforts during this week makes me feel appreciated & proud"
- Gretchen Pulver CDM, CFPP, Food Services Manager, Delta County Memorial Hospital
"I appreciate ANFP supporting their membership by offering raffles for membership dues. Being a part of an organization that is committed to its membership with free continuing education opportunities, dues raffles, and membership appreciation events is refreshing."
- Greg Mueller WCMC, CEC, CCA, ACE, AAC, CDM, CFPP
