Provisional Membership

Provisional membership is available to people who are new to the futures field, or who believe they are doing futures work, but have no formal qualifications or professional experience in the field.

You can apply for Provisional Membership based on your own self-assessment of your skills and experience, or you may be granted Provisional Membership after an assessment of your skills and experience is deemed to not meet the requirements for Full Membership.

Please read the requirements for Full Membership before applying, as you will need to address these criteria when you apply for Provisional Membership.

Provisional Members are expected to develop their futures practice so that they meet the criteria for Full Membership within three years of accepting Provisional Membership. 

If you are accepted into the APF, a member will contact you to discuss your professional development options.

Note that while a Provisional Member, individuals are not able to use the APF logo or appellation.

To apply for provisional membership:
