FANA maintains a number of projects and committees that serve to facilitate organizational goals.
Publications and Communication:
The FANA Forum is our newsletter contact with paid members. Articles, updates, notices, reports, and fan-related information are provided to maintain our connections on a regular basis. You may share stories, reports, anecdotes, events, exhibit notices and items of interest with the Forum Editor. Member and guest input is welcome and encouraged. The FANA Journal is a publication for material related to fans that may reflect a more in depth view, research, scholarly studies, translations, lectures or personal experiences involved in fan collecting. The Editors are most happy to receive items for both the Journal and the Forum.
Archives: Organizational records, our FANA history, photos, slides, past publications, donated and purchased archive material, fan books, and a variety of other informational pieces are maintained in the Archives. Members and qualified individuals may request items from the Archives. These items are available in compliance with the FANA lending policy. Typically a deposit and postage expense will be required before material is released. A due date for return will be specified.
Grants: Organizations, entities or individuals with appropriate projects related to education, research, publication, field of study, exhibition or conservation related to fans are encouraged to apply for grant consideration. FANA will accept and review grant requests on an annual basis. A grant application may be printed by clicking on the link below. An application must be submitted by February 1 to the FANA President. Applications are reviewed by the Grant Committee and the Board of Directors. Recommendations for a grant award are presented to the membership at the annual Assemblage for approval.
