How does this look? The numbers are from the November NANFA database (except I left off our one member in Alaska to keep the map readable). The orange wedges indicate NANFA members that are on the forum, and the yellow are members that are not on the forum).

Updated NANFA membership mapped out using a quick google map.  This shows our 426 members as of August 2017.  To keep things readable on a single picture I have pasted our European members into a small box on the bottom right.  Also I have left off three members (1 in Australia, 1 in Alaska, and one overseas US serviceman who's address is not a true location as deployments change).

 

I also have color coded the regional reps (purple) and the BOD members (gold).

Cool. Interesting to see how things are grouped.

Would be interesting to see an animated map showing the membership since NANFA was founded--both in terms of how the numbers have risen/fallen over time and how member distribution has expanded/contracted. 

Also, we need to get some members in Cuba and then have the convention there.

Only 5 Europeans?  I thought we had at least that many just in Germany.

I am trying to make sense of the patterns of lines the group memberships form on the map. I assume the Great Lakes area V is the Ohio and Mississippi drainages. I think the California semi circle traces the edges of a valley if I remember right. The NH to Virginia line, the Carolina coastal grouping, and the coast to gulf Florida group puzzle me.

It just dawned on me, BOSWASH! The northeast line may reflect population density on the Boston to Washington Megalopolis.

Don't forget about the Appalachian Mountains that produce a lot of diverse drainages which runs down that corridor.  That, in conjunction with all the major cities on the East Coast certainly accounts for those groupings  The Blue Ridge Mts. are about 60 or so miles west from D.C.  I live about half way between the two and am within a few hours of several major drainages & fish assemblages within VA alone.

The grouping is not good regardless of how species diversity is distributed.

Need more to the west.  Lack of balance makes for a situation like you have in Wizard of Oz where extreme areas drag everyone else around.  Remember the witches.  Need more NANFA people in the drainages that are less represented.

I'm waiting for my NANFA Resettlement Package to come through. When it does I'm off to the Black Hills/Badlands area of SD. First order of business, gettin' rid of those invasive cichlids. Might only be able to swing part-time residency, so if the BOD needs to rescale my award appropriately, I understand. :P

Sorry Matt - to balance out our membership map we need to resettle you at the Idaho-Nevada-Utah border.  Hope you like it there.

Leadership needs to be more dispersed.  If you are in areas well represented, you are less likely to have an issue.

I believe nominations for BOD are still open.

at 25 fl. seems underrepresented, considering our population and the number of fish keepers here. Guess i'll have to do some recruiting.

Do-able. I'd be open to Alaska,too.
