In our quest for excellence, members of the executive board will be assigned additional responsibilities during the one-year term extension of the current term of offices. The new roles will provide the board members the opportunity for professional development. The purpose of the professional development is to help enhance the organizational, administrative, and managerial skills of the board members. Again, the new assignments of the board members will be on a pro tem basis. Please be informed that the instruments of office shall NOT be transferred during the period of professional training i.e. per the constitution, the instruments of office SHALL be with our elected officers, the national president and treasurer.
