Nominations for the next class of participants in the NGFA’s Committee Apprenticeship Program (CAP) will be accepted Jan. 8 – Jan. 29.
The CAP is designed to help develop future leaders within the industry and the NGFA. A limited number of apprentice positions are available – generally, one to three per committee, based on committee size. Apprentices will be expected to participate fully in all committee activities, including meetings, conference calls and email exchanges. They will be encouraged to learn the committee’s issues thoroughly and to participate actively in discussions. However, apprentices are not authorized to vote on committee matters, although such votes are rare. View past CAP testimonials and more information on NGFA’s CAP page.
Please send nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org.
New CAPs will be informed of their status by Feb. 8 in time to register and attend the NGFA’s convention on March 17-19, when the CAP year officially begins.
CAP Alumni Association: Given the success of the CAP, NGFA is creating a CAP Alumni Association and will be hosting its first CAP Alumni Reception during the 123rd Annual Convention in Amelia Island. During the reception, we’ll celebrate the “graduation” of NGFA’s fifth class of CAPs and unveil the CAP Alumni Association, designed to continue peer-to-peer networking and NGFA involvement beyond apprenticeship.
