Dear NCSS Community,
As you know, the House of Delegates (HOD) Steering Committee is charged with revising the HOD Manual to keep it consistent with the NCSS Constitution, policies and current practice (Article VII, Section 2k). Additionally, the HOD Manual allows the Steering Committee to "provide guidance and direction for the resolutions process, through the chair, throughout the year, including at the annual NCSS Summer Leadership Institute and subsequent outreach to affiliated councils, associated groups, and communities" (Article VII, Section 2d).
Beginning on May 23 and with subsequent deliberations, the NCSS President-Elect, current and incoming Steering Committee Chairs, and Staff agreed to the following changes that will enhance the HOD as the NCSS Annual Business Meeting and meet the needs of our current membership and profession:
NCSS will continue to ensure that all members and stakeholders have an opportunity to provide feedback, guidance and grievances, to NCSS that support the Resolutions process all year long. Additionally, NCSS has planned other opportunities for members and stakeholders to engage with each other and NCSS. Please look for a separate announcement this summer on our monthly Leadership Forum Series of webinars.
The changes above will be reflected in detail in the 2017 HOD Manual and referenced in the Call for Resolutions which you will be receiving shortly.
Thank you for your understanding. Please feel free to contact me any time with questions or suggestions.
2017-18 NCSS Steering Committee Chair
