The National Association of Park Foundations (NAPF) Board may from time to time establish an Advisory Council or Councils that serve as NAPF’s presence in key geographical or demographic areas of the country. Regional Advisors advance the mission and goals of NAPF and serve as direct links to the communities in which they reside. The Advisory Council will assist in Membership Recruitment and Retention, Fundraising Campaigns, Special Projects and promotion of NAPF educational programs and activities. The Advisory Council will not have voting authority and serve only as ex-officio members of the NAPF Board.



The Advisory Council shall be composed of no more than 36 persons at any time and members will be appointed by NAPF Board of Directors. Former members of the Board of Directors are eligible for appointment but cannot hold a Board position consecutively with a position on the Advisory Council. 



Council members shall serve a term of three (3) years. The Board of Directors may reappoint Council members to an additional three year term at the conclusion of the first term. No Council member shall serve for more than two consecutive three year terms


For additional information about the Advisory Council and/or to request consideration to serve on the NAPF Advisory Council, please contact NAPF executive director, Donald A. Ortale, at or call 630-965-1000.
