Membership Benefits

AFE offers the following services that are now exclusive benefits for members:


AFE hosts some of the most exciting fire ecology conferences in the world! AFE members will receive discounted registration rates on all of our conferences and priority selection for presenting at our conferences over non-members. As well, there may be special “members only” activities such as field trips, socials, or presentations during our conferences or at other times.

Wildland Fire Certification Program

Only AFE members may apply for this exciting new program that offers professional certification for fire ecologists. The goals of this program are to formally identify fire careers as vital professions, to set standards for the preparation of future fire professionals, and to document the education, experience, and training qualifications of fire ecology researchers, educators, and managers. Once certified, AFE members will be listed on our website.


AFE has three annual prestigious awards that it gives out to outstanding students and professionals in the field of fire ecology. Only AFE members can submit nominations for awards.

More to come

We are continuing to develop our membership benefits to show our appreciation to our members. And we’d love to hear from you! If you have ideas, comments, suggestions, or questions, please contact us at office@fireecology.net.
