Executive Committee

NFFC’s board of directors is comprised of one representative from each member organization. The Executive Committee, a subset of the board, is the chief decision-making body of the coalition. The EC is made up of four officers and up to seven at-large members, and is voted in by member organizations at the annual NFFC winter meeting.
