The Emerging Federal Planners (EFP) group strives to provide guidance and opportunities for new planners to cultivate and grow into the next generation of leading federal planners while building relationships and friendships between other new and emerging professionals. EFP is here to enrich the federal planning experience through virtual and in-person events such as social events, lunch’n’learns, conferences, mentor/mentee relationships, and career development opportunities.


Membership to EFP is open to all planners with less than 8 years of planning experience. There is no membership fee to join EFP.
