From the Vice Presidents…

                        – Wes Bearden, 1  Vice President
                        Thank you for allowing me to serve as your 1st Vice President. This has been a good year for NCISS!

                        I have been busy helping facilitate and host our first legislative round table call. I am happy to report
                        that we had over 30 associations join in the call and participate. This call is meant to accomplish two
                        objectives. First, to create tangible value for our association members who have been supportive of
        the association. Second, to create a framework to collaborate on new and exciting legislative goals and opportunities. I
        encourage you to read the summaries of the call. But, in short it seems that we have had success. As we move to the
        new year, I intend to propose to the board creating a new nationwide public relations campaign designed to feature
        individual members. Such a campaign is useful in convincing congress, regulators and state legislatures of our relevance
        and purpose. I hope to see each of you at the upcoming Michigan convention and that we have a productive mid-term
        board meeting. Again, thank you for allowing me to serve you in this role. Let’s finish out 2019 with a bang!

                        – Lisa Turley, 3  Vice President
                        As mid-term is quickly approaching I’m reminded of the passing of time and the importance of
                        purpose. It’s easy to be so busy working so many angles and juggling many responsibilities that we
                        miss the mark of our target.  The same applies to our associations of which we belong.  Our association
                        is thoughtful and mindful in our direction as it relates to cost, engagement, and the quality product
                        that we offer our individual members and state associations. Most recently we targeted our state
                        associations in a nationwide conference as a way to communicate and listen to what is important to
                        our legislation affecting our state associations and offer our national presence and identify our assets
        and deficiencies so we can be strong together and provide support.  To all the state presidents and/or legislative chairs
        who participated, thank you!  As we purpose back to our legislative roots, looking forward to gaining momentum and
        increased participation from our states.   Humbled to serve, Lisa.
