Life Membership

Support the NFA and lock in lifetime membership to our inspiring community of flutists.

When you become an NFA life member, you align yourself with the flute community and the objectives of the NFA.

Being a life member means you're devoted to your path as a flutist, committed to being a part of the rich and diverse flute community, and deeply supportive of our collective work to inspire flutists and enrich lives through scholarships, commissions, conventions, mentorship programs, and other initiatives.

Make a one-time payment or make monthly payments for one year and be an NFA member for life.

"Being a life member of the NFA is a source of enormous pride and accomplishment, giving dependable support for the organization’s long-term plans. Many flutists have paved the way for us with selflessness, gratitude, artistry, creativity, and leadership. Consider getting a life membership: it is a solid investment in the NFA."

Give the gift of life membership

If someone you know has recently taken up the flute, is about to graduate, or has a special occasion coming up, consider giving them an NFA life membership—in doing so, you give them a lifetime's access to a community of fellow flutists and resources to enhance their flute life. To set up a gift life membership, contact membership manager Mily Harrod.
