NAA Update from Susan Passmore
NAA Region IV Vice President

NAA Assembly of Delegates

NAA’s largest business meeting of the year took place in beautiful Cincinnati, Ohio, November 2nd-4th. The 2022 budget was affirmed, delegates voted on various bylaw changes, and the Diversity and Inclusion Committee was renamed the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee. At the installation dinner, Don Brunner was sworn in as 2022 Chairman and Region 4’s very own Chris Burns was elected as incoming Secretary. Region 4 RVPs were also installed for the 2022-2023 cycle. Those RVPs are Chris Carter with Carter Haston, Susan Sherfield with Mercy Housing, and me. A special election will be taking place before the end of the year to fill the spot left vacant when Chris Burns assumes the Secretary position at the beginning of the year. The 2022-2023 term will be my fourth and final term as RVP. I am humbled by the continued support of our region and by the amazing volunteers who have consistently dedicated their time year after year to make our region so successful. I look forward to working even harder these last two years and finishing strong!
