Details for Board and Officer Positions
  • Work of the board and elected officers occurs primarily by monthly conference call.


  • NACNS Bylaws specify that a minimum 2 years of consecutive membership is required to run for a board-related office.


  • All board-related positions are for a 2-year term. The president-elect has a 3-year term (1 year as president-elect, 1 year as president and 1 year as past president.)


  • There are two face-to-face board meetings per year. Meetings occur at the Annual Conference and in July. Elected board members are encouraged to attend the NACNS Annual Conference, March 10-13, 2020 in Indianapolis, IL.


  • The first board meeting for the newly elected board members takes place on Saturday (March 14) of the 2020 Annual Conference. NACNS does not pay expenses for newly elected board members to attend this meeting.


  • NACNS has a volunteer reimbursement policy that offsets much of the costs of your travel to and from the board meetings after the 2020 Annual Conference. This policy will go into effect for your travel from April 2019 through the end of your term in March 2021.
