NFPW President Marsha Hoffman recently traveled across the country from Council Bluffs, Iowa, to Virginia to meet with the NFPW management team, which is based in the Richmond region. Following an intensive meeting, Marsha joined VPC members who were available for dinner at a local barbecue restaurant. Attending were Sande Snead, Cynthia Price, Wendi Hughes (Admin Concepts), Jordan Hendler (Admin Concepts), Pam Stallsmith, NFPW President Marsha Hoffman and Bonnie Atwood.

Strategic areas of focus for NFPW in 2015

Early in 2015, NFPW members were asked to take a survey to give feedback about the organization and why the organization was important to them. Using that feedback, the NFPW elected and appointed officers identified a strategic path for the organization that includes four focus areas: conferences, membership, contest, and advocacy. To learn more about these areas of focus, read the Winter 2016 issue of Agenda.

Meet NFPW's new management team

Admin Concepts, which was selected to provide to NFPW the administrative services formerly provided by American Press Works, has worked diligently to ensure a seamless transition. Meet the new management team in the Winter 2016 issue of Agenda.

Giving to NFPW and the NFPW Education Fund
