November 2019 Newsletter - Opt In! Join a Committee

Greetings fellow NERVES members! The end of the year is almost upon us, and it’s time to refocus on our commitment to improving our Society. During the Annual Meeting in San Diego this past April, many of you asked about volunteering to serve on one of our many committees. We want to follow-up with you now, as well as inviting any other interested member to submit a request to join one of our great committees. At our summer meeting this year, your Board worked very hard and accomplished a great deal, including the re-organization of several of the committees to better serve our members interests. Below is a list of the Society’s committees, it’s current chairperson, a brief description of its responsibilities and the number of open member slots.

November 2019 Newsletter - NERVES Constructs its Mission, Vision and Value Statements

NERVES Constructs its Mission, Vision and Value Statements

Organizations create mission, vision and value statements to provide direction for everything that happens in an organization. These statements help leaders and members stay focused on the organization’s purpose, its future objectives, and its core values and beliefs. Every organization should draft these 3 statements, and they should be set out clearly.  An organization should expect its leaders and members to behave in a way that furthers its mission, vision, and values.  Our NERVES Board of Directors used a portion of our summer meeting to create these 3 important statements.  Our process was collaborative and creative as we worked through several brainstorming exercises that resulted in pictures, ideas, words, themes, and finally… our statements.
