What is the National Capital SAF?
The National Capital SAF is one of thirty-two State Societies that make up the national organization of the SAF. Our members generally live and work in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. However, there are two other State Societies located in our metropolitan area - the Appalachian Society in northern Virginia and the Allegheny Society in Maryland. We have over 300 members in the National Capital SAF. Members may join any state society they wish by paying the appropriate state society dues.
Our NCSAF members serve in positions with Federal and local governments, forest industry and affiliated organizations, non-governmental conservation and environmental organizations, colleges and universities, and small businesses, including consulting foresters. In addition, some of our members are now retired.

The Society of American Foresters (SAF) is the national scientific and educational organization representing the forestry profession in the United States. Founded in 1900 by Gifford Pinchot, it is the largest professional society in the world for foresters and other professions interested in forestry.
The mission of the Society of American Foresters is to advance the science, education, technology, and practice of forestry; to enhance the competency of its members; to establish professional excellence; and, to use the knowledge, skills, and conservation ethic of the profession to ensure the continued health and use of forest ecosystems and the present and future availability of forest resources to benefit society. SAF is a nonprofit organization meeting the requirements of 501 (c) (3). SAF members include natural resource professionals in public and private settings, researchers, CEOs, administrators, educators, and students.
