This will be a quick message to bring everyone up to date on a few topics. Please take the time to read this message to see the news.
** The NACS-FSA Board will be going to Washington DC on April 23-26 to meet with National Office staff. We want to know what topics you would like discussed. Please let me or any Board member know what is on your mind.
** Each year NACS-FSA awards the Blood, Sweat, and Tears Award to a member who has or is making significant contributions to the association on either a state or national level or both. If you would like to nominate someone, please contact me and we can talk about the nomination process. We would like to have worthy members nominated by May 1, 2019.
** Be sure to submit resolutions to be reviewed at the convention. We know there are lots of great ideas out there on ways to better serve our customers and improve our programs. You can submit them either through the website or a Board member.
** I want to encourage members to go to the NACS-FSA website to sign up to receive emails. I recommend you use your home email address so you can receive news even if you are away from work.
** Nathan Adams, Zone C Representative, has put together a great newsletter with highlights from the Zone C/D Meeting in Tennessee. it has been posted to the website. Please go there and read it.
** A challenge has been made..... At the Zone C/D Meeting, members there contributed $155 for the Wunder Fund. Because the other zone meetings were cancelled, the challenge has been put out there to see if Zone A or Zone B can beat this amount. Are you up for the challenge, members from A and B? Contact NACS Treasurer, Ray Bartholomew, and he will let you know how to make a contribution.
