More than anything else, what keeps me passionately engaged with NAFTZ is the people: association staff, grantees, companies and other service providers. As an association you can’t have purpose or make real progress on the issues without the right people. Events are the glue that brings the people together, and the pandemic was a stark reminder of how valuable our interpersonal connections are.
