ABANA 2010 Board Officers Election Results

It is my pleasure to bring you news from the recent ABANA board meeting held on the beautiful grounds of the Metal Museum in Memphis Tennessee.  The board spent over
10 hours on Friday with a professional facilitator to better train your board of directors
on strategic planning, effective cooperation, meaningful communication, and other useful "tools" to make the job of serving all of you to the very best of our ability.

The board is very excited about the upcoming year and making ABANA the very best it can be.
  On Saturday we took on some organizational business and discussion regarding the 2012 conference.  More exciting details on all of that very soon! Below are the officer election results which also occurred at the meeting.
Officer Election Results:What makes this organization so great is the direct involvement of the members on all
levels from serving on the board of directors down to simply encouraging others to join!

If you are interested in getting involved more with your organization please contact me
with your interests and ideas. There is a place for you to get involved from serving on committees as off-board members, to running for the board in 2011, and much more!

Here is a very short list of what we need help with:

Web design -  If you do this for a living and want to get involved with helping update and maintain our website please let us know!!!

2012 Conference volunteers!

Candidates for the 2011 ABANA board election.

Affiliate representatives to become a part of the Affiliate Relations Committee to better serve our great affiliates out there!

Your skills and interests are important to ABANA! So, if you want to get involved just let me know your ideas and we can find a place for you! Strike while the iron is hot and get involved!!!

Yours in service,
Peyton Anderson
ABANA President
