“The Board of Directors shares gratitude with the membership and community for their support during the transition of leadership,” new president Croucher said in a statement.
“As our collective focus shifts to building a strong and healthy community space, the NAFC board gently reminds everyone of our code of conduct and our zero tolerance for bullying or harassment towards any Board of Director, Staff or Member. NAFC must uphold values of being a community guided by respect, accountability, open-mindedness, cultural understanding, honesty, and integrity while achieving our vision of being a cultural connected community where mutual respect and acceptance enable Indigenous people to achieve their full potential.”
