Greetings NASE Members!
I hope this finds you well and slowly catching up with work demands. I hope too, that everyone has had a chance this summer to reconnect with family and friends!
This past 18 months has been a challenge for everyone, including our employee associations. This will be the second year that we have been unable to meet in person for a convention. With that being said, the NASE Executive Board has decided to extend the terms of the Board for one additional year as NACS did in 2020. NASE will not have an election this year. We look forward to seeing many of you next summer for an in-person convention!
NASE will have a business meeting via phone on Tuesday, September 14 at 4:30 pm CST to discuss a by-law change, resolutions and other topics. Download the text of the proposed by-law change here. (The change was also sent two weeks ago from your Zone Representative). The proposed change is to implement a NASE Lifetime Membership. Please be sure to review the document. The Board is also asking for annual reports to be submitted to Tania Perlinger by September 8th.
We need resolutions!! Please visit the NASE website to submit a resolution electronically or print and submit to Resolution Coordinator, Angie Biester. Resolutions can be submitted throughout the year, not just near convention/business meeting time.
Have you heard about the NASE Fundraiser for this year?? It’s a drone! Please see the flyer for detailed information. Contact the webmaster or president for tickets to print and sell. The drawing will be September 14 near the end of our business call. Please submit money and tickets to Nancy Reiff, Treasurer, by September 8th. The drone would make a wonderful Christmas gift for someone!
A reminder about the upcoming business meeting will be sent out the week of September 6 along with an agenda. The reminder will include the phone number and access code for the call.
If you have any questions, please reach out to me or any of the other board members. I greatly appreciate the dedicated members of NASE and look forward to speaking with you in September.
