Nominations for 2012-2013 Board Now Being Accepted

This message is for parents/guardians of children on IEPs or 504s and residing in Northboro or Southboro. 
We are now accepting nominations for officer roles for the 2012-2013 school year.  You may nominate yourself or someone else (probably a good idea to check with them first). 
Note, information about the election meeting date will be sent in a separate email.  
If you enjoy volunteering in a leadership role and are willing to make the commitment of service required by our NSPAC board officers, please consider nominating yourself. The officer term runs 8/1/12 – 7/30/13. Deadline for nominations is June 8, 2012.
__Yes, I wish to nominate myself for a NSPAC board officer position.
I wish to nominate __________________________ for a NSPAC board position.
Please mark the position you are interested in:

Please return this information to nspac1@gmail.com by JUNE 8, 2012
Because we all lead extremely busy lives, we try to keep meetings of the board to a minimum and conduct business via email and phone calls.    However, officers should plan to attend 1 monthly meeting with Special Education Administration.  Additionally, the president and/or vice-president (and other board members if available) attends the superintendent's parent advisory meeting also held monthly. (This group consists of the PTO chairs from across the district.)   I can answer any questions you may have about being a NSPAC officer.
We also have multiple people in the same role so that the work can be distributed among several people. (2 VPs, 2 Secretarys, 2 Presidents, etc.).  If you would like to step up and be mentored by an existing officer next year, please indicate that in your email.  We are very interested in having some new parents/guardians join us on the board.
As we plan for next year, we will have many volunteer opportunities available for our events and presentations. More to come.....
