Welcome to the new APF platform that combines our front-end public website with our back-end member-only community.

https://www.apf.org/

Catch this 2-minute launch video that shows you the "LinkedIn" type features of the new APF.

The platform will unite all our online resources, including your member profile, our public website, events, social networking, and discussion forums. Every day when you visit, you will find "Your Feed" full of activity from your connections. Catch these two tours of the site: 

To login, type your email as your username on this Password Reset page. Create a new password. If you have problems, contact us immediately.

To start, download and walk through our "10 Steps to Get Started." To go further, 
download our Online User Guide, http://bit.ly/2VXYAb3. This manual details how to enhance your Profile, link to other APF members as "connections," post to the Group feed of your Region, and post to our community-wide Member Forum. 

"I've been waiting for this site for a long time," Dennis Draeger shared. "The listserv is great, but it can often be clunky... Hopefully, this is the perfect time for us to transition to this type of site."

Please take time over the next 10 days to enhance your Profile. You will find double the News for futurists, an upgraded Events calendar, plus a Career Center to apply for futurist jobs or speaking events. Plus our new platform has its own dedicated "SocialLink" mobile app, that you can install on your iPhone or Android phone. 

As we look toward 2020 to further our mission to advance professional foresight, our new platform represents an entire new chapter. I want to thank the APF Board, who called for this move to a new online home going back to 2017. Also, I want to give a shout out to the launch team, who worked tirelessly since January: Jon Dagle, Kimberly Daniels, Alireza Hejazi and Richard Yonck.

Thank you in advance for taking the time this month to make this your home as we reset our sights to "work the future" together for everyone, everywhere.
