CFN: NASSS Special Election

Dear NASSS Colleagues:

Please see below (and attached) the call for nominations for a special election for Treasurer. We had great participation in our recent election, and we hope to match that with this equally important Special Election for Treasurer. Voting is planned to take place from May 1 through June 1, but first step is to fill in our ballot. On behalf of the NASSS President and Board, I invite you to nominate yourself or a colleague at this time - no later than Friday April 29, 2011.

Thanks - Kathy
