NFDA Governance & Structure

For the first time in the history of NFDA, the members of NFDA – not the House of Delegates – will elect the 2016-17 officers of the association!

At the 2015 NFDA International Convention & Expo in Indianapolis, the House of Delegates passed a resolution that gives membership the responsibility for voting for changes to the NFDA bylaws and election of officers to the Board of Directors. Each NFDA member firm (main location) receives two votes (as cast by the primary contact) and each individual member receives one vote, ensuring that all NFDA members have a voice in governance.
