2021 Happy New Years from NOWA

Fellow NOWA Members Dave K and Dave V on assignment in Guyana in 2017

Hi Everyone,

Well, we made it! If you’re like me you breathed a sigh of relief as 2020 slid into the rearview mirror. While “everything” is not over yet, we are closer to the finish line and a return to more normal lives.

Not long ago NOWA President Ron Kerr decided to step down. Ron did a lot for NOWA over the years and will always be part of the organization. I’d like to extend a big THANK YOU to Ron for all his efforts over the years!

I’ve agreed to be on the next election ballot as President and will stay on as long as I’m needed. If you’d like to serve as President, by all means throw your name into the hat! Our By-Laws require an election and it’s way more fun with more than one candidate. Like nearly every non-profit organization these days we have more positions than we have volunteers to fill them. Given this I’ll be reaching out in the near future to see if some of you could help us out.

Now for the most important news. The NOWA EIC contest is underway. The deadline for submissions is February 1st. We’ve got plenty of prize money so don’t miss your chance! Email or call me or Matt Liere if you have any questions.

The NOWA directory is now online, here’s the link: https://nowaoutdoors.com/nowa-members/

We have set up a doodle poll for some professional development seminars that are in the works. Please take a moment to make your wishes known by clicking the links below.
