2019-20 Board of Governors Officer Candidates

Dear Members,

The Nominating and Elections Committee is pleased to present for your consideration the following officer candidates for 2019-20. The Committee has approved candidates who not only have demonstrated leadership capabilities, but more importantly who also have seriously considered their goals for NAPABA, the challenges and opportunities they see facing NAPABA in the coming year and how they anticipate accomplishing them. Beyond participation, we believe leadership and accomplishment are key. In preparation of the exercise of your right to vote, we encourage you to take the time to consider the vision each candidate has for NAPABA and to make your selections accordingly. We have instructed each candidate to respond to the following questions within his/her statement:

(1) With respect to the position you are seeking, what goals do you have for NAPABA, and how do they align or diverge from NAPABA’s most recent strategic plan?

(2) What are the challenges and opportunities you see facing NAPABA in the coming year?

(3) How do you anticipate accomplishing your goals?

(4) What particular training or experience do you bring that would make you a strong NAPABA officer?

We thank each of the candidates for their willingness to serve our organization and our community.
