NBB members invited to help lead, set direction for their association

By NBB | September 10, 2012

The upcoming National Biodiesel Board membership meeting Nov. 12-14 in St. Louis is one of three major membership meetings at which industry participants can help set the direction for the future of the biodiesel industry.

“Any successful industry association is made up of actively engaged members who are educated about our issues and volunteer their time to execute the membership’s vision for the future,” said NBB Chairman Gary Haer. “There are many opportunities throughout the year for members to network through committee participation or at membership meetings.”

This year, an election committee appointed by Haer is seeking nominations to fill seven board positions created by term expirations.

“If you are considering a committee leadership or board position, I, or the staff, am happy to facilitate introductions to others in that group who can help you learn more about leadership roles,” said Haer. “These leadership positions are critical to our industry and manageable in your current job.” The annual review and update to the organization’s Resolutions and Position Handbook also takes place in the fall.

NBB members have an opportunity prior to the November board meeting to review the current industry positions. The agenda at the board meeting then offers time for committee considerations and, ultimately, a governing board vote on potential changes to existing resolutions and the adoption of new resolutions.

“We know that our industry is full of passionate individuals with great ideas for moving our industry forward,” Haer said. “We want to hear from you about those ideas or help answer your questions. Please do not hesitate to send an email or call me or the other board members. And, as always, our dedicated staff is always available to help the membership.”
