Advisory Board

MFAN’s Advisory Board is a group of military and veteran spouses who are leaders and changemakers in their communities. Advisors bring unique backgrounds to the table, giving MFAN a fuller understanding of what military families truly need and value. Through the diverse networks of each member, MFAN implements a peer-influencer model, which allows for real, authentic connection and information sharing across the military-connected community.
