OBJECTIVES & BENEFITS
The Fashion Network Association (FNA): setting the stage for students and alumnae passionate about fashion to gain industry knowledge through creating, producing and promoting fashion events and publications. Not only does the FNA provide a gateway to meet many other fashion involved individuals, but it also provides members with opportunities to build important life and career skills–leadership, relationship building, teamwork, project management–and experiences to work and network within the San Francisco Bay Area community.
If you are interested in joining the FNA, sign up for our mailing list: firstname.lastname@example.org

You can also choose to hand it to any of the FNA officers. Membership dues are $20 per semester. (Includes a free FNA tote bag!)
