Members who serve on the WANAFTO board, do so on their own time. These positions are not paid or compensated. These individuals have a strong desire to see the apprenticeship training model succeed in Washington State. Commonly referred to as the Field Training Officer concept (FTO) for Law Enforcement, Communications, and Corrections. This is the most widely used training model in Washington State.

The WANAFTO Board meets several times annually. They communicate with the regional directors and the advisory members to ensure the success of the Washington Chapter of NAFTO. Additionally they are the local voice for the National Association of Field Training Officers. To be elected to the WANAFTO board, you must first be a member in good standing with WANAFTO.
