NASF’s commitment to inclusiveness and diversity

WASHINGTON—The National Association of State Foresters is a non-profit forestry association composed of the directors of the state forestry agencies from 50 states, eight territories and the District of Columbia. State Foresters work to conserve, protect and enhance America’s trees and forests.

NASF members and staff are an association of forestry leaders and are committed to inclusiveness, diversity and respect. Our members, who serve the public’s best interest, believe in integrity, professionalism and responsive service to all individuals and communities.

While we are an organization of 59 members from varied landscapes, we speak with one voice. We are committed to ensuring that our collective voice, seen as a leading opinion in the conservation community, maintains a professional level of courtesy, respect and objectivity without discrimination on the basis of gender, race, religion, age, sexual orientation, geographic area, political affiliation or disability.

NASF is stronger as an association because we embrace diversity and respect differences in all forms. Today we reaffirm our commitment to being leaders in the forestry community who serve the public interest with respect. America’s forests will be stronger thanks to our leadership.
