One of the many opportunities that distinguish our Association from most others is the great strides we take to get our members involved. Association involvement is a way to support members in building their reputations and credibility. Particularly, and often unexpectedly, it is within these groups that relationships are formed by way of friendships, mentors, respected acquaintances, shared expertise, and even partnerships.
NACVA formed its first Board in 1993 and has experienced numerous transitions over the years. We have established hundreds of relationships with longtime members; many of whom are still involved with the organization today. Being associated with NACVA’s governance has become a treasured opportunity by many, and one I encourage you to consider. This link https://www.nacva.com/governance
is found under the heading: Association; then Association Governance; the individual boards are listed along the left. Each provides a brief description of that board along with photos of the current members that were elected to represent “you” and your best interests over a three-year period. One of those members could be YOU if you are nominated in the 2017 election.
I want to encourage and inspire you to take a chance and nominate yourself or another member you know has a desire to participate on any of the open Board positions (with his or her approval) that you believe would make an excellent candidate on one of NACVA’s boards. If you have any questions regarding the responsibilities, click here
to review the Guidelines regarding eligibility. In addition, there are numerous benefits to thank the board members for their service during their term on a NACVA board—it will be an experience you will remember for many years to come. If elected, your contribution, support, expertise, and participation is sure to make an impact on your career and the organization. Make the value of your membership with NACVA a part of your future; Get Involved.
