Regional Representatives

At LRFA, we strive to understand the needs of our members throughout the country. We have an all-volunteer group of regional representatives (delegates) that are elected by the members, who are locally available to answer your questions. Once every two years, there is a representative conference where we review changes in policies, propose new benefit plans, and examine great new ideas to move the organization forward.

On the left are links to photos of our past conferences, which are well attended by representatives from all over the United States.
