CHAIR’S UPDATE – SEPT 2018 – See you in Pittsburgh

Dr. Jay Gary, APF Chair

Earlier this week I had the opportunity to connect with 11 new APF members in our online New Member MeetUp. It was inspiring to hear their stories from New Zealand, South Africa, United Kingdom, Canada, and Northern Virginia. Nearly to a person, they had been doing applied futures work, without realizing there was an Association of Professional Futurists! These new members left our time saying, “I feel like I have found my tribe!” or “I feel like I am part of one world, one conversation, despite us being on three continents.” Our new members are expressing what we have all experienced, we are part of a unique community of practice, unlike no other, because we just don’t think about the future—we work the future! Here is my September members-only update. – Jay Gary
