[FNCA History]

Past FNCA Presidents

Since our "camp year" starts at a different time than a calendar year, the dates below refer to the camp session(s) during which the person was president of the Assembly.

In 2002, we changed our administrative structure from a single body called the "Executive Committee" to two separate decision-making bodies: the Board of Directors to make policy, and the Summer Session Committee to run the camp session. Along these same lines, we also made the President of the Board and Camp Director — previously always done by the chair of the Executive Committee as a single job — into two separate positions. Since then, except for that change-over year in 2002, the FNCA President and the Camp Director have been two different people.
