Regional Coordinator - Upper Valley and North Country

NHNPA is seeking volunteers for two different Regional Coordinator positions: the Upper Valley and North Country. This is a great way to network within your region and serve the statewide association.  

The role of the Regional Coordinator is to champion the practice of NPs in their region by demonstrating values of integrity, excellence, leadership, respect and service to NPs in New Hampshire. Regional coordinators are non-voting members of the Board of Directors and are invited to participate in Board meetings and retreats. The regional coordinators also meet on a quarterly basis as a team (virtually). They participate in efforts to increase membership, coordinate regional activities to offer networking opportunities and educational events to support local NPs throughout the year. Regional events will vary. We have some seen some very creative ideas: book/article discussions, potlucks, dinner out, industry-sponsored dinners with presentations from drug reps at local restaurants, virtual meet and greets, webinars and more!
