Leadership - Board of Directors

DFWAE works in the same way as members of your own association - we accomplish more together than we can separately. Your success benefits all of us.

We are an organization created by association managers to focus on the issues that directly affect them. Those issues are your issues, too, and that makes DFWAE your organization. The leaders in DFWAE are members that volunteer their time to offer a vision and guidance for the direction of DFWAE benefits and offerings.

If you're interested in serving in a leadership capacity, let us know by email, or feel free to contact any of our Board members (listed below) or Committee Chairs for more information.
