¶ 1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 A new Military Families Affiliate was initiated by contacting all the military support centers in the United States, with information about their state’s Council. All State Affiliates were notified and asked to make connections with these centers and their personnel. Twenty-two Affiliates applied for tax exemption status under NCFR. They also filed and received their rebates. The Affiliate Council workshop focused on recruiting NCFR members to the state Councils, and a discussion of regional affiliates took place.
