PFA is composed of chapters called “Nests.” Nests are divided into eight Districts. Nests are social groups, bringing together Members at various affairs. Throughout organization history, the Nest has been at the very center of PFA activities at the local level. Many Nests maintain their own buildings and hold activities at their facilities. Other Nests, even though they may not have their own buildings, still organize activities for their Members.
There are currently PFA Nests in Wisconsin, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Michigan, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
Each Nest has a slate of Officers elected to carry on the business of the Nest. Nest Officers include the President, Vice President(s), Recording Secretary, Financial Secretary, Treasurer, Instructor or Instructress.
A Nest is considered in “good standing” with National Headquarters if it has at least 25 Insured Benefit Members in good standing, meets at least four times a year, and has a full slate of Officers identified on the required forms from National.
