NACS just completed our 42nd annual convention in Rosemont, Illinois. A big thank you goes out to John Gehrke and the entire Illinois delegation for putting on an outstanding convention! We were fortunate to have discussions with our Administrator Juan Garcia, Greg Diephouse- DAFO, Chris Beyerhelm- DAFLP and Heidi Ware from Budget. The newsletter that will be coming out will summarize their comments, but the good news is that the hiring ceilings have been released and it looks like we will be able to start filling some staffing holes that have been out there for some time.
NACS was proud give Honorary Membership to Mark Drewitz-MN and Millie Turner- PA for their outstanding service to the organization over the past many years. The Blood Sweat and Tears Award went to Bardell Faux from Idaho for his outstanding service as well. A big congratulation to them all!
