MAFSI Committees

MAFSI Committees

MAFSI addresses member issues and concerns by enlisting dynamic, powerful members as leaders of and participants in MAFSI committees.
The committees focus on identifying, analyzing, prioritizing, and acting on current and pending industry trends. Trends that are affecting the changing roles of manufacturers’ representatives and relations with our industry partners, namely manufacturers.
Right now, we have over 80 members, board members, and rising stars (members under 40) volunteering to work on our 6 different committees. These 6 committees are working on more than 30 different initiatives for MAFSI.
