|Are you a firm believer in the goals of the NSS? Do you have a desire to get involved with the Society at the national level? If so, you might be a potential candidate for a Society officer position.
At the upcoming 2010 Vermont NSS Convention the officer candidates for Executive, Administrative, and Operations Vice President will be interviewed and elected for a one year term by the NSS Directorate. In addition Peri Frantz, our current Treasurer, is stepping down. Interview times for the Treasurer position will be available at the Convention and at the Fall Board meeting when the new Treasurer will be elected for a one year term.
The officers are tasked with the day-to-day operation and management of the Society and accomplish this through the various committees assigned to them. Descriptions of the officers' departments and committees are found on the NSS web page and in the Members Manual. See the NSS Executive Search page for up-to-date information. Officers attend the three yearly Board of Governors meetings and two to three Executive Committee meetings. Officers can expect to devote time to their position each week.
Currently we have several officer positions where the incumbent is stepping down. If you feel you have the experience and time to be an officer then I'd like to hear from you. Feel free to contact me if you just want to ask some questions about being an officer: I can be reached at 703-573-1068, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or through the NSS Executive Search web page.
The latest Officer updates are available on the NSS Executive Search web page: see the "Current Event" tab. http://www.caves.org/info/execsearch/
