How many NAFOA Conferences have you attended?

Tell us about your favorite NAFOA Memory:
“NAFOA provides connections for the economic passions of the community. The Orange Book as an example was a group of volunteers that worked together for two years to see it through fruition. Amazing!”

What does NAFOA mean to you?
“I personally have appreciated the willingness of NAFOA’s community members that are seasoned in their finance/accounting careers to be mentors to younger generations. People like Corrine Wilson, Tasha Repp, and Mike Lettig have “brought the elevator” back down to continue to drive change. I attribute my path to them!”
