Serving on the NSPRA Board give you the opportunity to do some very meaning and rewarding work, but we also have a lot of fun! and Cathy is correct about the friendships!!

Great point, Music! I finally felt that I was "worthy" of serving on the Executive Board after serving on some NSPRA Committees. After seeing I had something to contribute to committee work, I saw that I was also capable of serving at the next level.
Hillary Wright-Kaufman

Love that - I've never felt worthy because I don't consider myself a natural leader. Great insights!

A few other things that Region VPs do:
Lori Perlow
52:32
Angela - No need to feel guilty. We know you've had our back in NJSPRA.
Cindy Warner
55:54
The APR Committee and Diversity and Equity Committees I think require a little bit more time commitment than some of the others.
Tom Scheidel
57:00
Regional VPs also spend time communicating with chapter leaders in their region.
Tracy Jentz
57:38
Prepping for Board meetings takes a few hours (to meet with chapter presidents, read the Board packet, etc.). Serving on a committee depends on what you're serving on (finance is one hour a month).At most, I would guess five hours a week (to network with regional colleagues, judge SPRA award submissions)
Ian Halperin

Over the past few years, I have a increase in activity from the NSPRA Board members. I think it provides a valuable connection between the SPRAs and the national office. Plus, you are all smart and fun people!

Very insightful!
Tom Scheidel

When I was recruited to run for regional VP the first thing I did was get buy in from my superintendent.
Tracy Jentz
01:06:00
I had a conversation with my superintendent first, and then wrote a letter to him that was included in my file. In the event my duties ever came into question, he could point to that and say it had been reviewed and approved.
Cindy Warner
01:06:39
You need that support from your superintendent. It helps if they are familiar with NSPRA themselves. My Superintendent LOVES NSPRA and attends the Seminar every year.
