NACS Board Going to DC
I am please to announce that the NACS Board will be at the National Office on April 15th and 16th for a consultative meeting. The National Office has agreed to allow us to make the trip on government travel which we are very appreciative of.
We have meetings scheduled with Administrator, Juan Garcia; Associate Administrator Candy Thompson; DAFO, Greg Diephouse and staff; DAFLP, Chris Beyerhelm and staff; DAFP, Mike Schmidt; ACIO, Loretta Burns; DAM, Mark Rucker; and OBF, Bruce Ward.
The main topic of discussion will be the proposed CBS office structure and how loan programs will be delivered and serviced from this office structure.
Chris Beyerhelm, DAFLP has been telling us that we are going to have more loan funds in the coming year and the question is how are we going to be staffed to deliver and service the growing program.
The board needs to hear from the membership about what is working well under the current structure and what areas could be improved upon going forward. You can send emails to the board through the NACS website. The website emails go to our personal email addresses so we are able to receive them when we do not have access to our government email.
I hope every state is making plans to send delegates to National Convention in Chicago June 28th through July 2nd, 2014. It would be tremendous to have 100% of state associations represented.
Have an Unbelievable Day
