Vote in NCFR's 2021 Elections

Get involved in the leadership of your organization! The vitality of NCFR depends on the dedication of its members to serve in leadership capacities at various levels of the organization.

Leadership in NCFR offers many benefits and rewards, including

  • The opportunity to share our knowledge and expertise in ways that will help promote the welfare of families and children;
  • Status and recognition by local, state, national, and international audiences; and
  • Networking and professional development opportunities.

The charge of the Elections Council is to identify people who are willing to commit their time and energy to leadership positions. Please consider how your skills and gifts might benefit NCFR. In turn, we are quite sure that you will gain valuable leadership experience and will grow personally as well as professionally. There are two ways to be involved: nominate candidates and vote in the elections.
