NALP’s Board of Directors met immediately prior to the April Annual Education in San Diego and again briefly at the end of Board Orientation in May. The Board reviewed and took action on several matters:

The Knowledge Management Implementation Work Group will work with NALP staff and a team of consultants to assess next steps and work towards the orderly implementation of identified initiatives.
The Board reviewed and approved the 2019-2020 Business Plan as presented by 2019-2020 NALP President Georgia Emery Gray. In addition to a full complement of Sections and Groups, the plan includes five strategic work groups:
In May, the Board approved a modest increase in PSJD Subscription fees for the 2019-2020 program year commencing July 1.

The Board reviewed NALP’s finances, which are in good shape, despite the unpredictable market.
The Board also approved updated signatories to the banking and investment accounts and approved a parliamentarian for the business year.
The Board is preparing to engage in strategic planning and will be working with individual sections, task forces, and work groups on this project throughout the year. The Board has engaged a consultant to facilitate the process.
The Board also extended their welcome to two new staff members who have joined NALP since the beginning of the year – Claire Nash as Member Services Coordinator and Danielle Taylor as Director of Research. Judy Collins has moved into the new position of Senior Research Associate for Special Projects in a part-time status.
