Board of Directors

The National Christmas Tree Association is governed by a Board of Directors, comprised of Christmas Tree growers and retailers who represent an extensive cross section of the industry. Directors pledge to put the best interests of the farm-grown Christmas Tree industry ahead of the individual needs of the national association, their personal businesses and the special interests of the state or regional association that elected them to office.

The Executive Committee is comprised of the elected officers: president, president-elect, vice president of finance, two vice presidents, and the immediate past president. 

Executive Committee

Blake Rafeld, President
Tom Dull, President-Elect
