The AFS has and continues to provide tremendous value by predicating its existence on the dissemination of information, education, and the encouragement of research.  Membership comes from a wide variety of backgrounds, including end-users, marketing and distribution engineers, product designers, research scientists, raw material designers, company management, consultants, academia, and officials of government.  
We are cordially inviting all of you to participate and present your latest research, innovation, and new product at AFS FiltCon 2023 with filtration experts from all around the world.

So, we are most excited about it.
