Board Director Job description:

The board members help each other help the association.

We try to follow the advice of boards which have come before us. We have that advice written down – everybody on the board gets a copy. We keep an eye on changing situations and try to adapt to them.

We take turns sweeping the floor. There are other tasks too, stuff that has to be done by “somebody.” They’re not hard, but they do need doing.

It doesn’t take genius. It doesn’t take charisma. It takes some time, of course. It takes a bit of effort sometimes.

The rewards are huge. We get to watch the NWBA grow and get better and better. It’s kind of like visiting grandchildren. We get to interact with some of the amazing people who are part of the NWBA. These amazing people are people like you! They don’t know they’re amazing, they’re too busy just doing what they think is right.

Please think about being a member of the board. We need your unrealized amazing-ness!

Nominations will be open until November 15, 2015. The NWBA has contributed to the education and success of many members.
