MAFN offers a place for facilitators of all levels to improve their skills and knowledge, gain practical experience, discover new tools/approaches, and connect with like-minded professionals for learning and business opportunities. 

It is the only organization in the Mid-Atlantic region focused exclusively on advancing the art and science of facilitation, with the intent of promoting the highest standards in the field.

MAFN is an inclusive, welcoming community that taps the collective wisdom and knowledge of facilitators from around the Mid-Atlantic and the nation.
