Honorary Membership. The NFO has an Honorary Membership category. The purpose of the Honorary Membership in the National Folk Organization is “to honor individuals who have provided extraordinary and long-term service to the National Folk Organization and/or its mission.”

If there is someone in your community who has made extraordinary contributions to your dance community, present their name and biographical information to the membership committee, along with two letters of recommendation for consideration. The nominee need not be a member of the NFO. Nominations will need to include the following: (1) contact information for both the nominator and the nominee; (2) the reasons for the nomination, and specifically how the nominee fulfills the guidelines; (3) a brief biography with emphasis on aspects that support the folk arts; (4) at least two letters of support for the nomination; (5) any other supporting documents felt appropriate.This is an opportunity to recognize a leader in your community, share their contributions, and enrich the NFO.
