Nominations requested for 2015 Regional Director!


Regional Director Nominations Now Accepted

by nasparegion5

We would like to ask for your help in soliciting nominations for the 2015-2017 NASPA Region V Director (RD). Please consider colleagues who have been invested in Region V and the activities of NASPA. You may want to consider nominating yourself! As a past Region V Director, I can tell you personally that it is a very rewarding experience. Once we receive a nomination, we will contact the potential candidate to determine their willingness to be considered and to obtain biographical information. A general overview of duties include:

·         Serve as the regional representative on the NASPA Board of Directors.

·         Coordinate regional activities as an official spokesperson for the Association in the Region.

·         Serve as the official representative of the Association at meetings of other associations in the region, when requested by the Chair or Board of Directors.

·         Inform members and affiliates within the region of activities by regular communications or meetings.

·         Plan and conduct regional activities which are scheduled at the NASPA Annual Conference.

·         Strengthen membership in the Association.

·         Develop, maintain, and participate in succession planning for new Regional Directors.

A committee will review all nominations and evaluate them on the basis of regional and/or national involvement and other contributions to the profession. A slate of two candidates will then be forwarded to the NAPSA office, which will prepare the official ballot for distribution to all voting members in the Region.  Ballots will be electronically mailed in January 2014 and elections will be open for 30 days. The person elected will serve as the Region V Director-Elect from March 2014 – March 2015, and then take over as the Regional Director from March 2015 – March 2017.

Please send nominations to me at by no later than October 4, 2013.  If you have questions, please feel free to call me at (208) 459-5841.
