The NERCA Board of Directors met to review the Association’s past year and begin planning for the future. In attendance at the meeting were President Louis Silver, 1st Vice President Bradley Sontz, 2nd Vice President Steve Harvey, Immediate Past President Chris Sears, Treasurer Brian Hurley, and NERCA Staff Members Thomas J. Gunning and Patsy Sweeney.
The various Committees met and dissected the 2017 Convention and other NERCA events. By taking a critical eye to the 2107 Convention, the Membership Committee hopes to build upon its success and ensure that the 2018 Convention is even better attended and valuable to our members.
The Safety and Education Committee looked at the NERCA training schedule to try and identify additional ways that the Association can add value to our members and increase interactions between them.
In addition, the Committee reviewed the recruitment of new membership and retention of current membership. We hope to continually grow our membership and hope to use past trends and data to identify which recruitment strategies are most successful. We look forward to another productive and successful year thanks to the dedication of our leadership and all those who contribute their time and effort to make the most of our Association.
