The NEDRA Board is happy to report that this year's Annual Conference: Leveraging Fundraising Intelligence, was a great success. We hope that everyone who attended enjoyed themselves, learned new things, and met new people. There are some changes to report from the Annual Business Meeting that occurred at the Conference. First of all, the membership voted to approve a new slate of Board members for the coming year. With Amber Countis and Bruce Berg rotating off the Board, and with Anne Brownlee and Tina Tong moving to distant lands, we have a new slate of officers, and four new Board members. The Board Officers for this year will be as follows:
President, Suzy Campos
Vice President, Tara McMullen
Secretary, Ian Wells
Treasurer, Lisa Foster
The new Board members are:
Erin Dupuis, Merrimack College
Tim Enman, Smith College
Susan Grivno, University of New Hampshire
Stacey Vial MacDonnell, Harvard Law School
The membership also voted on two changes to the bylaws. First, the term of membership will now last for 12 months from the date of signup, rather than ending on June 30 of the membership year. Second, instead of only being possible at the Annual Business Meeting, membership votes will be able to take place at other times and in other forms, such as electronic voting. Additionally, a measure will pass if a majority of votes cast are in favor of it, rather than a majority of the entire membership (to prevent a situation where a small "turnout" would be enough to prevent a measure from passing).
