AFE Chapter 21 - Rochester, NY
The Rochester chapter of the Association for Facilities Engineering (AFE), formerly the American Institute of Plant Engineers, is a non-profit, dynamic organization dedicated to the advancement of facilities management, engineering maintenance and facility operations. This chapter formed in 1967 is one of 144 chapters across the US and has members representing both small and large organizations, including industrial, medical, educational, and commercial sectors as well as consulting engineers, architects, contractors and suppliers. Because of this diverse membership, we have created a strong network of professionals that far exceed their counterparts in any other organization. Our chapter and its’ members are dedicated to the advancement of the profession which includes promotion of the Certified Plant Engineer (CPE), Certified Plant Maintenance Manager (CPMM) designation, granting scholarships each year to deserving local engineering students and participating in facility related events within the local community.
We meet on the third Wednesday each month from September through June. Approximately 25-35 people attend these meetings which are held at area restaurants immediately following a guided tour of a local facility of interest to the group. In addition guest speakers are featured during the dinner presenting topics of particular interest and importance to the membership.
AFE as a National Organization
AFE, started in 1954, is the largest professional organization devoted exclusively to the global field of facilities engineering management.
