The NAFA Board of Directors recently 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.
NAFA says the new structure provides increased opportunities for members to get together locally to develop relationships and learn with and from each other. This will all be 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.
