Board of Directors

From its inception, the NFA has been driven by leadership of exceptional vision and caliber, flutists whose lives—as performers, scholars, pedagogues, and composers—illustrate the aspirations of the organization they shape. Past presidents, program chairs, and committee chairs have included principal flutists of leading American orchestras, top-tier soloists and chamber musicians, and professors at the foremost conservatories and universities.
