Welcome to NSAC - Far Western Chapter
Message from the President, Renee Avilla
Thank you for your interest and membership in the Far Western Chapter of the National Society of Accountants for Cooperatives! The Chapter’s Board of Directors and Program Committee have worked to put together a diverse and educational program for our 2015 Far Western Chapter meeting, which will be held May 20-22, 2015 in Napa, CA.
Our Chapter’s Board of Directors includes representatives from cooperatives and service providers in our region. I am honored to serve this chapter and its geographic and industry-diverse membership. We encourage our members to get involved and provide feedback related to chapter events, program agendas and the various committee opportunities. There are also significant resources and learning opportunities to be found on the National NSAC website.
Please take a few moments to learn more about the Far Western Chapter and consider how you can get involved in the Chapter during the coming year:
