Peek Under the Hood: News From the NEDRA Board

Tue, January 31, 2017 1:42 PM | Laura Parshall

The NEDRA Board had its monthly operations call on January 13. Among the subjects discussed were board openings, the 2017 conference, and upcoming programs.

We're sad to announce that Stacey Vial MacDonnell, former co-chair of the Sponsorship Committee, has left the NEDRA Board. Additionally, Tim Enman, co-chair of the Programming Committee, will be leaving at the end of this board term. We will miss both of our colleagues, and wish them the very best in their future endeavors!

Stacey and Tim's departures mean that we are now seeking board nominations. If you are interested in joining the board, or know someone who would make an excellent board member, fill out a nomination form today. NEDRA board members serve a two-year term beginning in July. The board meets several times per year in person and monthly by phone; in addition, board members attend selected NEDRA programs and the annual conference. The board consists of at least 12 members who rotate responsibilities to:

  • Perform executive leadership and governance duties
  • Organize programs, boot camps, and the annual conference
  • Produce, edit, and distribute NEDRA News
  • Maintain the NEDRA website
  • Design and author marketing materials
  • Secure sponsors for conference and other programming opportunities
  • Grow and diversify membership
  • Collaborate with management association staff
  • Develop other member services, and manage volunteer committees
  • Investigate and implement social media and other cutting edge tools to engage members throughout all of New England and provide meaningful content through online or other virtual means
Be passionate advocates for the profession

  • Experience in prospect research, management, analytics, or related industries
  • Active NEDRA membership

  • Interested in helping others advance in the profession as demonstrated by leadership within the workplace and/or among professionals in the field
  • Other relevant volunteer experience
