Candidates/ Nominations Needed for Secretary and President-elect
I would like to take a moment to let all the voting members know that elections are about to take place. The elections are taking place earlier this year than in the past and will continue to be during the end of the second quarter or beginning of third quarter from here on out.
We have elected to make this change due to the fact that our Annual Conference is directly related to our organizations finanical success and our ability to do such good work. The conference requires many man hours of organizaiton and hard work from committee members and the annual conference is typcially held in the first or second week of April. It is the President- elects primary duty to be the Chair of this Committee and its success. It is not feesable to expect a successful conference to be put together in just 2-3 short months. Therefore, it has been decided that elections will be held earlier so that the in-coming President-elect will have more time to gather Committee Chairs and members and therefore turn out a successful Annual Conference.
The current openings for election are Secretary and Presdient-elect. Nominations will be held open until Agust 14 with voting to begin on August 15th. If you have thought of taking a more active role in NTNP then now is the time to do it. We need you and your energy.
This has been a great year for me as President and I can tell you that the support and encouragement you will recieve is ever-present. Past Board Members are always available to provide direction, support and the history of where our organization has been as well as where it might go. Do not be fearful of taking a position. We all want to make a differnece in our organization and should you chose to step up to the plate, you should know that you will be stepping into a team that is there to support you.
If I can answer any questions, please do not hestiate to email.
