NAF Chapter Tours

In 2006, the NAF conducted its first chapter tour with the popular Dutch journalist, Geert Mak, traveling and speaking across the U.S.  In following years, the Foundation organized several other tours on topics such as Dutch-American relations, art and culture, history, politics, Indo-Dutch cuisine and historical fiction. The tours have showcased Dutch and American talent in the NAF chapter cities while maximizing resources through shared costs and planning.

Following is a list of the NAF chapter tours since 2006. If you would like to recommend an author or topic for NAF chapter tour, please email us at
