Sponsored Membership Offer

Jim HillDr. Jim Hill, founder and CEO of Proofpoint Systems, a Marine Corps veteran, and past president of both ISPI and AFC- ISPI, has made a very generous offer to perspective members of AFC-ISPI. Dr. Hill will pay the first year's dues for ten NEW international members of the Armed Forces Chapter (other than the United States and Canada).

It is Jim's hope that we can recruit members of the armed forces from less fortunate areas of the world and provide them an avenue to learn and collaborate with fellow AFC members in the field of Human Performance Technology (HPT). Contact Scott @ about this great opportunity!
