I first joined NAFA in 1980 or 1981 but have not been a member for a few years due to reasons similar to those that get brought up in NAFA discussions. I tried it again for a few years ago, but not much had changed so I left again. However, it really looks like there are some good folks inside, like Donna, trying to improve things and work on the weak points, and I'm impressed by the new website and all that it represents. I think Donna's posts have convinced me to give it another try - as soon as I find a NAFA member to sign my app. I'll be sending it in, and seeing if I can't help with some of those volunteer opportunities. I'm optimistic and hoping that things really have changed.
