Highlights from the Board’s January Meeting!
On behalf of NAQC’s Board of Directors, I would like to extend greetings to all of you!
The second meeting of the Board for the 2012/2013 year was held by teleconference on January 30. The agenda included review and monitoring on a number of NAQC governance policies (including conflict of interest), presentation of the CEO’s reports on financial planning and fundraising; a report from this year’s Nomination Committee; and a discussion on the future of quitlines.
Call for Candidates for the Board!
Work is underway to identify candidates for this year’s election of the Board of Directors. Three positions on the Board are open. I would like to encourage you to please review the Call for Candidates
, recently distributed by the Nomination Committee, and ask that you submit names of those you would like to represent you on the Board. Each year, we receive over a dozen highly qualified candidate names from the membership. This level of member involvement makes it possible to have a high-functioning Board that is truly representative of the membership-as-a-whole.
For a complete list of all NAQC Board members and to learn more about the Board, please visit the Board of Directors
page on the NAQC Web site.
The Future of Quitlines!
Work continues on developing an issue paper for the membership on the critical topic, the Future of Quitlines
. Staff and Board discussed progress on the paper at the January Board meeting. We anticipate having a draft paper before the next Board meeting in April. I look forward to sharing the draft paper with you and hearing your feedback.
If you have any questions or comments, please email me at Board@NAQuitline.org
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the Board
