Bylaw Change:
Vote at NFH Annual Business Meeting

NEW! Cabin Outreach Program

NFH leadership voted in May, 2015 to establish the Cabin Outreach Program.

The reasoning was simple. Local cabin owners would contact other local cabin owners so that NFH could learn more about cabins and cabin tracts, far and wide, so that cabin tracts and cabin owners could benefit from the collective, institutional knowledge base within the NFH network.

It’s taken over a year for this vision to coalesce into a plan, and soon the plan will become a reality.

Our new Field Director (applications now closed) will direct this outreach program and will be searching the cabin world for Cabin Outreach volunteers.

Our goal, quite simply, is to grow our cabin owner network so that we can all help each other with our collective experiences.
