Make a Nomination

Do you know of someone who would make a great appointee for the NFA? Is that person you?

NFA members may nominate people, including themselves, for any position. These positions include the Board of Directors, Committee Chairs, Competition Coordinators, Program Chairs, and the Executive Board positions such as President/Vice-President, Secretary/Assistant Secretary, and Treasurer. Nominations for appointee positions are considered in January each year, but members are free to recommend potential candidates for consideration at any time.

You can also use this form to get involved in NFA's activities in many additional ways by self-nominating at any time. Here are some examples of ways to engage:

  • Competition judge (state any specific competition you think you would be qualified to judge)
  • Committee member (state committees of particular interest)
  • Virtual events Zoom tech/host (Sunday afternoons)
  • Virtual events application reviewer
  • Convention Program Book proofreader (bios)
  • Convention Program Book proofreader (repertoire guides)
  • Convention Volunteer
  • Young Artist Mentorship Program (YAMP) Mentor

Just fill out the form, making sure to include your area of interest, and submit.

Please let us know of the nominee’s specific interests and qualifications regarding their skills, particularly non-musical (e.g., accounting, Zoom management, etc.). Ideal volunteers and appointees are grounded, reliable, flexible, and practical. Administrative experience is a plus!

"Volunteering for the NFA, I have met so many talented colleagues. I am thankful for and proud of the Young Artist Mentorship Program for which I serve as a mentor. In collaboration with co-founder Mily Harrod, providing additional career opportunities for traditionally marginalized students and promoting the uniqueness of the next generation of flutists inspires me to continue being an educator."

"The NFA has been there for me in so many ways. As a student, I was blown away by the convention. As a professional, I've loved all the resources and especially all the people. As a volunteer, I’ve never been part of a harder working group. We need more voices, though. We need your voice. Volunteer, nominate someone you know, and make it your NFA!"

"Serving the NFA as coordinator of the First Generation in College Scholarship and as a member of the Diversity & Inclusion Committee is a very rewarding experience. It allows me to make a difference in the life of many and create opportunities for the professional growth of young and talented flutists."
