NTSO desperately needs a secretary to be a member of next year's officers.
This position is essential for the success of this organization.
The secretary takes notes at each meeting and meets with the board once a
month to discuss options and upcoming events of the organization. You will
be an integral part of the president's advisory committee. The president
needs a board that cares about the organization, one that can help him/her
make decisions that are healthy for the organization. As an officer, you can
make a difference.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE consider your own schedule and determine if you can
give to this organization. There are over 200 of you guys out there; surely
one of you can make this commitment.
Of course, all positions are open. While we have one person that has
volunteered for the other positions, no one has stepped up to run for
secretary. We could certainly use other members running for these other
positions too. This makes for a healthy election!
The officer positions include: President, Vice President, Business Manager
and Secretary. Descriptions of these positions are listed below. This comes
directly from the constitution.
President - In charge of communications, coordinates meeting times, prepares
official paperwork and keeps deadlines, mediates meetings and keeps group

Thank you for your help.
