Message President Danny Bell
Fellow Society Members,
The North Carolina Society of Certified Public Managers® exists to promote fellowship and cooperation in public service.
I am both humbled and honored to serve this year as the president of the NCSCPM and I thank you for your support.
Just over a month ago, we had our annual general membership where we installed the officers and board members for this year. It was refreshing to see new faces – both new to the society as well as new to the Board of Directors. I appreciate those who committed to carving out a little time out of their already busy calendars to serve as officers and board members for this year. I look forward to a successful and active were working with you all in the society.
We also began setting up the seven permanent committees. Each of them has at least some members and the committee chair has been assigned. Some of the committees are just big enough to be viable but could use more members. This is where I am asking for your help.
Please review the excerpt (attached) from Section 4.08 of the NCSCPM Constitution and Bylaws - Standard Operating Procedures. A full explanation of each committee can be found in Sections 5.09 - 5.15. I respectfully you to consider donating a little of your time and talent to strengthen these committees. There is no real limit on the size of most committees (some have minimums set in the SOPs) so there are plenty of opportunities to participate. The meeting cadence will be decided upon by the committee with the approval of the chair. Each committee chair will report progress to the board of directors during the monthly Board of Directors (BOD) meetings. When applicable, the BOD will approve expenditures, help eliminate barriers and provide other guidance as needed.
Please feel free to reach out to me or to one of the committee chairpersons (Committee listing link below) to let us know what committee on which you might like to serve. We look forward to hearing from you.
2020 Board of Directors Installed
The 2020 Board of Directors were installed at the Society's annual meeting held on January 22, 2020 at the OSHR Learning and Development Center on Peace St in Raleigh, NC.
