Dear NASE members
As we all cool our jets at home, don’t lose your focus. Patience is a virtue. (I haven’t been known for that ever, in my 65 years on the earth.) Let us learn from our past. We will need to look for the best out of our leadership.
We aren’t hearing any more than other associations. We would like to let you know your board can be reached on our home phones and at our personal emails. (See contact page)
We are looking forward to be able to return to work, just as you are.
Happy New Year
Beth Perkins, President

Please join NASE in congratulating Marilyn McMullen, a NASE Past President, on her selection as Farm Loan Chief for Montana. Here is Marilyn's message to NASE members:
"It is with a little bit of sadness that I say I am no longer able to be a full fledged member of NASE. I will continue my membership as an associate because I believe this is the best organization an employee can belong to if you want some control over your work processes.
If there is ever anything I can do for any of you from my new Farm Loan Chief position, please do not hesitate to ask. I hope you don't mind if I call on you all once in a while as well."
Thank you Marilyn, for your service to customers, employees, and NASE!
(L to R : Peterson, Biester, Truman, Harmon, Blehm, Renwick, McIlravy, Monson, Johnson, Perkins, McAdams, and Northey)
