Please note: The NAN Chair does not need to personally do all the above tasks. The NAN Chair is free to delegate to other volunteers but the Chair is ultimately responsible for making sure that all jobs get done. Co-Chairs are possible, but the stipend must be split between the co-chairs. The NAN Chair serves as the head of the NAN Committee. Therefore, the NAN Chair may NOT show at NAN. There is a $525 stipend for this position, which will be paid after NAN 2018 upon successful completion of all tasks and obligations.

If you are interested in being the 2018 NAN Chair, please send the following information to President Pat Coulter no later than December 1st.
