Association for Federal Information Resources Management

The Association for Federal Information Resources Management (AFFIRM) is a non-profit, volunteer, educational organization whose overall purpose is to improve the management of information, and related systems and resources, within the Federal government. Founded in 1979, and based in the Washington, DC area, AFFIRM's members include information resource management professionals from the Federal, academic, and industry sectors. AFFIRM is also an affiliated council of the American Council for Technology (ACT). In supporting this purpose, AFFIRM seeks to provide its members with professional development opportunities, networking, and interaction with policymakers.

AFFIRM brings people together in a vendor neutral environment, to learn from one another—across federal agencies, industry, nonprofits, and academia. AFFIRM educates and informs the federal IT community, and nurture and mentor the next generation of IT leaders to address high level IT and management issues. AFFIRM focuses on senior management issues, from a multi-agency and functionally diverse perspective. AFFIRM helps members gain a broader, more informed viewpoint in order to be more effective and do a better job managing the IT portfolios within their organizations.
