A message from your NACE Alamo Board:
Is that a hint of coolness in the air? We certainly hope so as we transition from the always hot and sticky summer months to the slightly cooler temperatures of fall. Just like the seasons change, NACE Alamo Board will begin to transition as well. We are accepting Intent to Run Forms through September 30th, and Board Elections will take place Tuesday, November 10. We are taking nominations for all positions.
Why serve on the NACE Alamo Board? That is an easy question! Grow your leadership strengths while giving back to your industry. Each board position offers the opportunity to learn a new skill set (hello beefed up resume!) The NACE Alamo Board is a supportive community (also great for potential references!) We encourage you to nominate yourself or another member before our November elections. Scroll down for more information in this month’s newsletter.
We can’t wait to see you virtually at our next meeting “Lead Your Evolution” on Tuesday, September 22 at 11:30am. We are proud to partner with NACE Austin to bring you the world’s very first YouTube Celebrity Judson Laipply! You may know his dance skills from the Evolution of Dance video, but did you know he is also a sought after speaker on energy and engagement?
So as we all turn over a new leaf in more ways than one during this season of change, please stay tuned for upcoming NACE Alamo meetings, events, and opportunities.
