This year, the business matters of each state Caucus will be held virtually in the week leading up to the Annual Meeting. The time usually reserved for on-site Caucuses has evolved into several state-specific gatherings before the full Welcome Reception, at which members can catch up and network with their fellow state colleagues.
The State Caucuses are integral to the operation of the NESS. The Society strongly encourages you to participate in your state's virtual meeting, during which the following will be discussed:
- Active membership proposals; it is recommended that each Active membership applicant have at least one of their sponsors present at the Caucus to advocate and vouch for them.
- Discussing appointments to State Representative positions that may be open on the Executive, Program, New Members, GME & Candidate Membership, and Archives Committees, as well as on the Scholars Foundation Board.
- Other state-specific issues.
