Your officers and staff, at your service

Your local representatives on the NEARI Delegate Assembly elect officers every two years at the annual meeting in May. Any active member is eligible to run for any post, with the exception of the regional vice presidents, each of whom must belong to the membership category or region he/she represents. There are no limits to officer terms.

The NEARI staff keeps the association running smoothly, and represents your interests at the local and state level.
