As a NAFA member, you belong to a community of professionals that share mutual goals, interests, and commitments. As our industry continues to advance at a rapid pace—along with the evolution of technology support systems, a growing diversified membership, and emergence of education programs from non-profit and for-profit sectors—the evolution of NAFA is critical to expand our member value.
Regional Restructure to Enhance the NAFA Member Experience
The Board of Directors voted to restructure the current chapter membership model to a regional governance model designed to enhance the member experience. Over the past few years, NAFA leadership, staff and groups of members have shaped a high-level plan to develop a regional structure determining what it looks like and how the regions will be dispersed geographically.
What does this mean for you?
This new structure provides increased opportunities for members to get together locally to develop relationships and learn with and from each other. This was all done through the lens of helping all NAFA members make the most of their membership regardless of where they work as well as reducing the organizational load borne by volunteers—allowing them to spend their time focused on creating productive learning and networking opportunities for members in their area. Thoughtful consideration went into determining each location including where members are located throughout North America, proximity to metropolitan areas and an even distribution of existing chapter members.
