PASS Board of Directors

I have been a Board of director for PASS for the past 2 years.  My time as a Board of Director has been and Exceptional experience and I would suggest any volunteer that is on the “fence” about running should put their hat in. 

Some good friends of mine had to “help” me the first time I submitted my entry for PASS Board of director.  I would suggest anyone out there that has a friend or knows someone considering running for the Board to urge them to do so.  I have never regretted putting my name in.  I have learned many things from the Board and it’s given me an experience I can’t find anywhere else.  The Board is a great group of people and are excellent to work with. 

Good luck if you do choose to run! 

PASS Call for Nominations.
