ST.JOHN’S, NL – NATI held its Annual General Meeting May 25 at the Bowering Park Bungalow in St. John’s, NL. The AGM was an opportunity for members to have their say on issues such as NATI’s financial health and the future direction of the organization. Most importantly, members participated in the election process for one position on the Board of Directors. Suzanne Kenny, of Deloitte Consulting, was elected and assumes her position effective immediately.
The overall size of the Board of Directors has been reduced from the current structure of fourteen (14) to seven (7). During the first official meeting of the new board, there will be an election of a Vice Chair who will automatically succeed to Chair at the 2012 AGM.
“Ultimately, what helps drive NATI’s success is the insight and vision of the NATI Board of Directors,” said Mr. Ron Taylor, NATI CEO. “Our 2011 – 2012 Board has members from some of the most prominent technology companies in the province and I am confident they will contribute to NATI’s future growth and success.”
Mr. Paul Dubé, NATI Chair, says the new Board will be an active one. “Our continued efforts from last year will be concentrated on building a new strategic plan that puts effective policy development and advocacy initiatives at the very heart of the association.”
NATI currently has plans underway to launch a new website, logo and communications plan for this fall. “Continuing NATI’s success will require further dedication and support from the Board, staff, membership and our partners,” declared Mr. Dubé. “It’s a challenge I am more than ready for this year as NATI’s Chair.”
