NASCA will hold our annual business meeting on Tuesday, September 24 from 5:30 – 7:00 PM CT in conjunction with the 2019 Institute on Management and Leadership. This is an important meeting as we will elect the Officer positions of President, Vice President and Treasurer, and At-large Director seats for the NASCA Executive Committee. In advance of this election, we are currently accepting nominations from state chief administrators (or a designated proxy) for these important positions.
- Per the bylaw amendment adopted in 2017, At-large Directors and Officers serve two-year terms, and may serve up to six consecutive years. Every At-large Directors seat and Officer seat is open for nomination. The term will begin after the vote on September 24, 2019 and ends at the 2021 annual meeting.
- The nominations will be presented as a slate for voting member approval during the Annual Business Meeting. The Executive Committee will review nominations and present the slate during the meeting. The Executive Committee will also nominate alternates to fill At-large Director vacancies as positions become open during the term.
- Nomination deadline: August 16, 5:00 PM ET. Please submit your nomination or self-nomination to Sarah Razor at firstname.lastname@example.org 859-514-9156.
It is our goal at NASCA to bring together state administrators from the 50 states to develop creative and timely solutions to issues facing the states. Chris Liu, Director, State of Washington and NASCA President said, "In 2017, I was elected President of NASCA by my colleagues, and this has been an extremely professionally and personally rewarding investment of my time. The state of Washington has greatly benefited from the network of peers I've come to know through this association, and it has helped our state achieve better and more efficient results within the public sector."
Liu continued, "A new group of leaders will continue the momentum and growth that we've started, and I strongly encourage you to reflect on how you can contribute. If your experience is like mine, you will get far more out of it than what you put into it. Even if you are a new state chief administrator, I urge you to consider self-nomination. The average tenure of a state chief administrator is 26 months, so in many ways almost everyone is new."
Please reach out to Sarah Razor for any questions you may have on the specific meeting commitments and duties. I also encourage all NASCA members to take a moment to review NASCA's Strategic Plan and Roadmap to stay up to date on the direction and goals of your association.
