November 2020 Summary Board Memo

The Board of Directors held their November Board meeting last week. We voted to approve investments that will strengthen our programs and support our members:

The Board approved an investment to strengthen and streamline the 1:1 Mentoring Program led by the Mentoring Committee.

With support from an external sponsor, the Board approved a member scholarship fund developed and administered by our Member Services Committee and Committee for Inclusive Excellence.

Look for more information about these programs coming soon.

A reminder that I, along with other NORDP Officers, am hosting a drop-in office hour once a month on the first Monday at 11am (eastern). You can find the link to office hours and other event on the NORDP calendar.

Sincerely,

Kimberly Eck
