NECHA President's Message

August 11 - The wheels continue to churn for the making of NECHA 2014: Making Waves in College Health.

And in the light of NECHA being more than a meeting', I'd like to remind you that nominations are now open for the 2013-2014 NECHA Board Election. The NECHA Board of Directors is active year around and meets formally three times a year (October/November at our Annual Meeting, January, and June).

Five positions are open for the coming academic year:

  • President-elect: a 3-year commitment, one year as president-elect, followed by one year as president, then one year as past president
  • Secretary: one-year term
  • Treasurer: one-year term
  • Members-at-Large: two 2-year terms
Board member positions are described in our by-laws. To throw your hat into the ring, download and complete the brief form and email to me.

The deadline to submit nominations for one of the Board positions is Friday, August 29. Online voting will take place October 1-20 prior to the 2014 NECHA Annual Meeting (a link will be provided through the NECHA website).

Not to rush summer, yet still looking forward to seeing you all at Wentworth by the Sea, October 29-31, 2014!

Denise McGoldrick, MS, MCHES
President, NECHA
