Minnesota Association of Family & Consumer Sciences


By becoming a member of the American Association of Family & Consumer Sciences (AAFCS), you automatically become a member of your state affiliate (Minnesota Association of Family & Consumer Sciences – MAFCS).  One membership fee covers both your national and state membership!

Wondering if joining AAFCS/MAFCS is for you?  Check out some of these reasons for joining your FCS professional association: 


New Professionals  - a new professional is defined as an individual in the first three years of an entry level professional position who no longer qualifies for the AAFCS student and/or new professionals membership.
