Have you always wanted to know how the world’s largest model horse hobby organization works from the inside? Do you have ideas about how to make the model horse showing world bigger and better? Do you have what it takes to represent your Region on the NAMHSA Board of Directors? If you have answered Yes to these questions, then NAMHSA Wants YOU!
NAMHSA Showholders and Individual Members, it is time to nominate
candidates for Regional Representative for Regions 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11. As a
NAMHSA Showholder and Individual member, it is your privilege and
responsibility to nominate candidates for your region.
2013-2015 Regional Representatives will take office at NAN 2013. Their term
will be for two years, ending at NAN 2015. This year, only ODD-numbered
regions are up for election (even-numbered regions will be up for election in
2014). Showholders and individual members may nominate anyone for the office
(including themselves), however, you MUST be certain the person you are
nominating has confirmed they are willing to run for office. Current office
holders (whose terms are expiring at NAN 2013) may be nominated again,
provided they are willing to run for re-election. The nominee must reside
within the Region for which he or she is nominated.
Candidates need to be
aware that the job requires a lot of communicating between the member in
their region and the Board, and requires making the time and commitment to
QUICKLY respond to Board work and issues. Board members assume ultimate
responsibility for running NAMHSA and assuring a quality NAN. Email
accessibility is required, as the NAMHSA Board is primarily an email entity.
It requires the ability to read and respond to Board emails daily.
Representatives are a moderator of their respective regional Yahoogroup
lists, and are encouraged to participate in discussions with their
constituents regarding NAMHSA issues.
