NAFA Bylaws Revised
The Norwin Alumni and Friends Association (NAFA) Board of Directors approved revisions to the NAFA Bylaws on Monday, August 17, 2019. The revisions addressed two main concerns: Effective immediately, NAFA membership will consist only of Life Members and Annual Members. Sponsor memberships have been eliminated entirely as the Board of Directors felt is was asking too much of the Norwin Business Community to invest in a membership and then also be asked throughout the year to sponsor individual events and/or purchase event program ads.
