Call to Nominations for NCBTA Board Members!

For the past few years, I have had the honor of being GBTA North Carolina's president. 

Between the friends and colleagues made during this time in addition to what I have learned about the industry and being a leader, I can genuinely say it has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. Not to mention, our successes could not have accomplished without the amazing NCBTA family of volunteers. 

As we move forward under the leadership of the wonderful Emily Winfrey in 2018, we have many great opportunities to help you share the same experiences within the NCBTA family. 

If you ever considered, "What can I do with my time to make a difference for my industry?" This is your chance to help influence change for the better.

Please reach out to admin@ncbta.org to get a nomination form for any of our open positions: Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, 2 Allied and 2 Direct elected board members. 

Nominations due: 10/20.

Thank you for your continued support of NCBTA!

Joe Currie - President NCBTA
