Time for another round of NCMATYC Elections. Woot, woot! As past-president, my role is to find people for the next executive board but I feel like I need your help.

So, I created a form for people to submit the position that they want to run for. https://forms.gle/UmMju1KPxtfKarZu8 Please help me in sharing this form with others, such as through an email or nudging them in a face-to-face conversation, because you feel they would be a great service on the 2020-2022 NCMATYC Board.

some of the SCHED features https://ncmatyc2019.sched.com you have as a speaker.

by you. You can use email feature to continue conversations, thank them

have added that note. I think you will get an email of your
