afpop provides many things for Members, including a network of Area Event Organisers (AEO). The details of these can be found in the Association's UPDATE magazine or here on the afpop website by selecting the area you would like more information about, along with those of the Office staff and Council members. AEO’s are volunteers and organise area lunches and other events, all of which are open to afpop Members and their guests. The details of these events are published in UPDATE and on the webiste along with organisers sending out notices to those who have asked to be registered as Social Members and are staying in Portugal. Area events are a great way to meet new people and learn about your local area. Any Member can attend any event, so please feel free to visit other areas and introduce yourself. You can select which areas you wish to receive notifications about in the Member Area under the ‘Edit Profile’ tab.
