This week the NEA 2016 Nominating Committee continues to introduce this year’s candidates through a series of announcements.
MEET THE CANDIDATES FOR TREASURER
The Treasurer is an active voting member on the Executive Board. They maintain NEA’s finances, develop the annual budget, work with various committees on financial policies and purchases, monitors award funds, and help keep NEA fiscally solvent. This year we have two candidates for the position of Treasurer (LISTED ALPHABETICALLY).
Each candidate answered the question: What would you bring to your role as the NEA Treasurer?
