I would like to update everyone on the status of the 2020 NACS/NASE/NADD National Convention that was to be held August 30-September 3 in Omaha, NE. You may have heard already, but the 2020 convention has been officially cancelled. It was a difficult decision for the Employee Associations to make, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we felt it was in the best interest of everyone involved.
For any members that have already submitted their registration fees, the Convention Committee will be providing you a full refund. Committee Chair, Maureen Mausbach, NE, will have the refunds processed within the next week or two.
NASE Executive Board members serve a 2-year term, so thankfully, elections were not needed this year. Current Zone Representatives have agreed to serve another year. Below you will find the NASE Executive Board and Zone Reps for 2020-2021:
President – Tamee Renwick, IL
Vice-President – Norma Miller, IL Zone A Rep – Kim Dewbre, NM
Secretary – Tania Perlinger, NE Zone B Rep – Kelly Anderson, TX
Treasurer – Nancy Reiff, IN Zone C Rep – Brittany Harney, IN
Past President – Angie Biester, NE Zone D Rep – Jackie Bigham, AR
The following are a few housekeeping items that were discussed during the July NASE Board meeting. The categories are being handled somewhat differently due to COVID and no National Convention.
Remember, resolutions can be submitted at any time. Please visit our website for a resolution form or just to browse! The website is located at www.fsanase.org.
Please stay healthy!!
The Resource Committee is asking for “nominations” for the following awards:
Commander of NASE Award - The Commander of NASE Award describes an individual who has made a substantial contribution to the Association either on a local or national level. One who has actively supported NASE. AN individual who performs on a higher order for the betterment of the members of the Association.

BLOOD, SWEAT & TEARS AWARD: A nomination for the NASE Blood, Sweat & Tears Award is an honor befitting those who have performed well above the call of duty on behalf of the members of our Association. Final selection for this award will be made by the Resource Committee. – NOTE: PLEASE Keep in mind this is a very special honor reserved for those individuals who have diligently worked on behalf of the Association, many times at great personal sacrifice.
