About the benefits of foresight for your organization.

Futurists work in global corporations, small businesses, consultancies, education, non-profits, and government. The APF was founded in 2002 and now includes more than 400 members from thirty-three countries.

Here is a brief brochure about joining the APF, and one that addresses student members. You can find information about some of this year’s plans for events here.

The APF aims to set the standard of excellence for foresight professionals. Members include futurists from businesses, governments and non-profits, consulting futurists, educators and students in future studies.

We meet regularly, hosting online, active electronic discussions among practitioners, providing professional development programs, recognizing excellence in future works, and offering a rich body of ideas and information about the future for our members and the public.
