NAVREF Board of Directors


NAVREF continues its tradition of strong voluntary leadership through the involvement of all NPCs. Each member NPC has the opportunity nominate candidates for election to the board. Each board member must be associated with a different NPC or affiliated VA medical center. Board member terms are three years and an individual may be elected for up to two consecutive terms. For details of NAVREF’s expectations of board members as well as board operations and logistics for meetings, please see "NAVREF Board Policies Expectations and Practices." Individuals interested in serving on the NAVREF board are encouraged to contact the NAVREF office.
