NASCOE’s By-Laws dictate the Secretary shall keep an accurate record of all transactions of the Association, including minutes of all meetings of the Board of Directors and Executive Committee. The By-Laws also state that the Secretary shall give an annual report to the Association. NASCOE’s Executive Policies state the Secretary’s Report should contain information pertinent to the NASCOE year, including but not limited to: a list of Officers, Executive Committee, National Chairs, and Board of Directors; material and financial assets of the association; Negotiation Items; budget information; and Executive Committee minutes. Additionally any changes to NASCOE’s Constitution and By-Laws, the NASCOE Travel Policy, the Executive Committee Policies, or other major revisions of policies or procedure should be included. The Executive Policies also state that the Report is to be posted on the NASCOE website. The 2020-2021 Annual Report has been compiled according to policy and formatted similarly to recent years.
NASCOE has partnered with Emblems by Superior to offer a $25 gift card to any fulltime FSA employee who joins NASCOE for the first time between now and July 31, 2020. Emblems by Superior offers USDA apparel and 15% of all sales goes to the scholarship fund.
Membership in NASCOE begins at the state association level. When an employee joins their state association, they are automatically joining NASCOE. Please take a moment to help us increase our membership by reaching out to employees in your state that aren’t currently members and ask them to consider joining.
Redeeming the $25 gift offer is easy! Upon completion of a membership application and FSA-444, State Presidents, State Membership Chairs or the new member simply needs to email the new employee’s name, home address and home email address to National Benefits-Emblems Chair, Chris Lary.
