MEMBER AT LARGE

NSTPNational Society of Tax Professionals (NSTP)

Earlier this year, the NSTP Board voted to add a new position to the organization: a “Member-at-Large” to the Board of Directors.  The position will annually be Board appointed.  Looking back over the years, there have been several Board-member mid-term openings.  Appointments to fill these vacancies by the Board have been made but often were timely and a difficult process to find the right person.  In the event there is a Board vacancy henceforth, the Board may appoint this person to fill the vacancy for the remainder of the vacant term.  In general, this new position will enable the annually appointed NSTP member total access to Board meetings, conversations, notes, financial data, etc.   The Member-at-Large, however, will not be entitled to “vote” on Board motions.  Once a member is appointed, the membership will be notified.
