Volunteer Positions

Why Volunteer?

As well as the enjoyment and camaraderie of being part of a dynamic team that supports NFAL and its activities, volunteers taking positions will appear on the NFAL Organization Chart;  they will be part of the executive, a coordinator or a committee, and will receive a special bonus of participating in the month-long Volunteer Exhibition in the prestigious Atrium Gallery in late May to late June.

Please consider helping out. We all benefit when YOU volunteer.
