Welcome to AFE Twin Cities Chapter 13
The Association for Facilities Engineering (AFE) is the premier organization for facilities engineers and operations professionals. We provide our members with the resources they need to achieve career success by uniting a large community of like-minded professionals who desire to learn and share the most efficient methods for operating and maintaining complex building and facility systems. And we help our members grow professionally through nationally accredited certification programs, local & national networking, continuing education events, primary and secondary level student activities & scholarship programs, and other resources for career advancement. Twin Cities Chapter 13 represents Minneapolis, Saint Paul, and Western Wisconsin. Click here to learn more about the benefits of Membership. Click here to Join!

Thank you to everyone who supported and participated in the 30th AFE Lucky 13 Golf Tournament. It was again a terrific event with 105 Golfers, 19 Tee Box Sponsors, and plenty of sunshine. We want to send out a big thanks to all attendees as your involvement helped raise $5000 for Student Scholarships. A huge thank you goes out to our golf shirt sponsors: MAVO, INSPEC, and Schwickerts. The shirts looked great! A special thanks goes out to the AFE Regional and National representatives for spending a couple of days with AFE Twin Cities Chapter 13. We also want to recognize the stellar effort by the Lucky 13 Golf Tournament Committee. They work hard to make this event one of the best Facility Industry tournaments in town. And finally, congratulations to the tournament winners, closest to the pin competitions, and long driving contests. We hope to see everyone again next year on July 15 for the 31st AFE Lucky 13 Golf Tournament.
We are very excited to announce that AFE Twin Cities Chapter 13 is transitioning to a web based Vendor Member Directory. The new directory replaces our 100 page paper based directory, which had been published for about 60 years. It was a good tool for listing Twin Cities Chapter 13 Vendor Members and Chapter 13 organizational information. However it was difficult to take with you and time consuming to look up Facility Suppliers. The new Vendor Member Directory will provide an excellent resource to quickly find Facility Suppliers that support AFE Twin Cities Chapter 13. Vendor Member listings will include a complete list of capabilities, contact information, photos, videos, and social media links. Additionally, Vendor Members can track browse and click information to better understand visitor effectiveness. The new site also automates annual membership renewals.
