“I’ve participated in many committees and always appreciate the fellowship over my 34 years at FUSN. When a position on the Operations Council came up last year I asked to be elected.” –Kate Mason
“My service with FUSN’s Board of Trustees was definitely a step out of my comfort zone. However in retrospect it served to increase my self-confidence, and without a doubt heightened my awareness of how a non-profit business is conducted. I would honestly say that I harbor no regrets in having been a part of the BoT team. I would label it an experience that brings with it and leaves you with valuable experience.” –Gregg DiBiaso
These quotes are from two FUSN members who are stepping down from their elected positions this year. As a result, the Nominating Committee is actively seeking members who would like to contribute their time and talent to leading FUSN. The Nominating Committee will staff a table at coffee hour where members can inquire about open positions and volunteer to be nominated or recommend members who might be approached by the Committee to see if they would be interested in serving.
