A virtual gathering

The Association of Professional Futurists (APF)  is a growing community of futurists dedicated to promoting professional excellence and demonstrating the value of strategic foresight and futures studies for their clients and employers. Members meet regularly and host active online discussions among practitioners. APF delivers professional development programs and recognition for excellence in futures. APF also convenes futurists around ideas and information about the future. Futures Festival is an opportunity for people across the globe to share their insights, experiences, and ideas about their work.
