NORDP’s 2020 Year in Review

Dear NORDP Colleagues,

The Board of Directors invites all NORDP members to attend our annual Year in Review meeting, which we are hosting virtually for the first time ever! In previous years, this event was known as the “annual business meeting” and was held during the annual conference, as an in-person event. Global circumstances have motivated us to take this event online, and we hope you’ll join us to learn about what our organization has accomplished this year, with record-high membership numbers and the official kickoff of a new organization-wide Strategic Plan.

The Year in Review meeting will feature:

  • Information on the NORDP Strategic Plan and a look ahead for 2020-2021 by President Karen Fletcher and Vice President/President Elect Kimberly Eck
  • A report on the organization’s fiscal health by Treasurer Jerilyn Hansen
  • Announcement of incoming officers and updates regarding the 2021 annual Conference
  • Year-in-Review and 2020-2021 plans presented by NORDP Committees:
      • Inclusive Excellence
      • Member Services
      • Mentoring
      • New Opportunities for Research Development (NORD)
      • Professional Development
      • Strategic Alliances
      • Nominating Committee

Webinar Date: Wednesday, May 20, 2020

Webinar Time: 12:00 pm – 1:30 PM ET

P.S. One regular item of business for this meeting is voting as a membership to approve the minutes from the previous year’s business meeting. The 2019 business meeting minutes can be found at nordp.org on the Meeting Minutes page (member login required; once you’ve logged in, scroll to the bottom of the Meeting Minutes page to find the draft minutes). Please read through ahead of the 2020 Year in Review meeting (so that you know what you’re voting on). Thanks!
