I have had the honor to be the Region 3 Director for almost 2 years and in this time I have met great people and tried to make NAI and Region 3 a better organization. Just like we do when we interpret nature and we ask our visitors to leave habitats in better shape than they were when we started.
I have also learned a few things about non-profits and member-based organization. One of the best things that have happened to me was to be nominated and elected to the Board of Directors. I want to help and empower other interpreters in any possible way to further their careers on the field of interpretation.
This is not a one-man’s job and elections are coming up in November, if you would like to help interpreters across the Region please contact our elections chair and run for the positions that we have up for election this year.
Having fresh ideas and new perspectives on the table is the only way to keep our professional organization relevant. if you have any ideas or suggestions about improving services from NAI please let me know.
Have a fantastic week,
Jose “Pepe” Chavez
