The FNA Association

The Flora of North America Association is a binational collaboration of over 30 U.S. and Canadian institutions and organizations.

Board of Directors

Board of Directors serves as and was formerly named the Editorial Committee. It is the governing body of the project. It consists of (1) Taxon Editors, each of whom is responsible for soliciting and editing treatments of blocks of families; (2) Regional Coordinators, each of whom acts as a liaison between the project and the botanical community in his or her region; (3) a Bibliographic Editor; (4) a Nomenclatural Editor; (5) liaisons to governmental agencies in the U.S. and Canada; and (6) a Managing Editor. The officers are President, Vice President and Editorial Director, Vice President for Business and Development, Secretary, and Treasurer. Special advisors with expertise in specific areas, such as economic uses or conservation, have been asked to join or assist the editorial committee, and others may be added before the project is completed.
