The Fan Association of North America (FANA) is an organization for anyone interested in the study, conservation, acquisition, and identification of vintage, collectible, and antique hand fans. New members are always welcome. We have individual and institutional members from nearly every state in the United States, as well as from Europe, Canada, Australia and Japan.FANA offers an opportunity to meet other collectors who are just as interested in fans as you are. Together we can share information on the fascinating aspects of fan collecting and study. Our annual meeting, called the Assemblage, is held in a different location every year. Highlights of our Assemblages include Members’ Fan Exhibits, the Members’ Fan Sale, and a Fan Auction, along with visits to area museums to see their fan collections.
