“Each summer, NCRA’s new Board of Directors begins work on behalf of the Association and profession. We are seeking candidates for the board who believe in NCRA’s mission and are willing to be active in their governance roles,” said NCRA Immediate Past President Sarah Nageotte, RDR, CRR, CRC, and chair of the Association’s Nominating Committee.

“The tasks we have before us have never been more important than they are today, and service on the board is a sure way our members can have a valuable part in moving NCRA and our profession into the future,” she added.

In finding the best candidates to serve on the next Board of Directors, the Nominating Committee relies upon active NCRA members who have an understanding of the qualities of leadership needed to help move the Association forward.

“We are encouraging all voting NCRA members to reach out to their fellow members in their local areas and state associations and recommend candidates. NCRA cannot thrive without the service of highly qualified volunteers. Please consider participating by volunteering to serve on the board or by recommending someone you believe can make a difference in our future,” Nageotte said.

NCRA members interested in declaring their candidacy for a board position, or who want to recommend someone they believe is qualified to serve, should submit their recommendations by Jan. 19, 2016 to boardnominations@ncra.org.
