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!

2017 Online Vendor Member Directory
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 manages payment and renewals automatically which reduces administrative labor and expense. 
Please look for an email from AFE Twin Cities Chapter 13 that invites you to list your organization. The email will contain a link that directs you to the new site where you can verify/update organization contact and capability information.  If you have any questions or want more information, please contact Joe Ryan at 651-247-9288 or
