Greater Philadelphia Chapter 6

Reactivated on May 18, 2010, Chapter 6 has been going strong since! As one of the oldest chapters of AFE (nee AIPE), it was one of the most prestigious and active chapters for years; but it became inactive for a few years in the 1990's. We meet nine months out of the year, skipping July, August and December, and offer educational presentations as well as tours of local industry or places of interest. The technical presentations earn CEU credit for the attendees.


Throughout the years since AFE incorporated (1954) as the American Institute of Plant Engineers, Chapter 6 has been prominent within the organizations by taking a national presence with many of its members holding several national offices. 

Why do we exist?

The Greater Philadelphia Chapter (6) of the Association for Facilities Engineering believes in and supports the mission of the Global organization which is to provide resources, education, leadership and networking opportunities for our members. On the national level, AFE offers certifications, Journal, webinars, Faciities America and other resources such as AFE Connections. At the local level, Chapter 6 has nine meetings per year with most being educational/networking meetings with some occasional tours of local facilities of interest scheduled. The June, 2015 was our first annual Energy Symposium which was very successful.The 2017 version is going to be even better with Ms. Kathy Manderino, the Secretary of the PA Department of Labor and Industry, as the keynote speaker.  Be sure to go to the EVENTS calendar to view all the upcoming events for Chapter 6. Some of our recent events are pictured on the slider at the top of this page.


-Fantastic news! On March 15-17, 2017 Hampton University will be holding their 39th Annual Black Family Conference attended by Hampton students, alumni, guests and even local Hampton citizens. This year the conference is hosted by their School of Engineering, which was asked to choose one alumnus to honor for his/her contributions to the Hampton School of Engineering. Chapter 6 is proud to announce that this year's honoree and recipient of the School of Engineering and Technology Alumni of the Year Award is our own, Mr. Dean Wallace!
