Join the NSS Leadership Team — Apply by November 30

The leadership solicitation of the NSS Executive Search Committee two months ago resulted in over 30 resumes being submitted from new potential and reinvigorated past NSS leaders, for either committee or officer positions.  Most of the resumes were for committee positions, and a few for officer positions (including one who made it to the ballot).  We are now focusing on open committee positions.

The NSS Board of Directors is now voting on the Officers to lead the Society for the next two years.  Once the election is complete, the new Officers have 30 days to nominate their committee members and chairs.  We would like to give those NSS members who missed the last deadline another chance to submit their resumes, while we continue to process the ones received.  Our goal is to engage every interested NSS member at some level in Society activities.

The National Space Society (NSS) is an open, democratic, grassroots organization where its members are directly involved in NSS operations and thus help shape the future.  You are not only the heart and soul, but the legs and arms, of the NSS.  Apply now to become an active part of the space movement via any of our various committee positions.  We want you to be a part of the NSS leadership team.  Help make the future happen.

NSS operating committees and their overseeing officers work as necessary with staff, volunteers, chapters, and contract services to further the Vision, Mission, and Objectives of the Society, as outlined in the Strategic Plan and related corporate documents.

In order to ensure that the Society finds the best people to join the NSS Leadership Team, the NSS Executive Committee has established a 2008 Executive Search Committee.  Its purpose is to seek out, from throughout the community of NSS members and those who share our vision, those individuals with the qualifications, abilities, and desire to serve a two-year term as an Operating Committee Member or Chair.

This is your chance to join the leadership of NSS and shape the future of space settlement!

We are seeking volunteer candidates with the time, talent, and motivation to serve as a Member, Secretary, or Chair on one or more of the following committees. Please review the committee descriptions to ensure that they meet your interests:

(Please check back with these descriptions periodically, as efforts are being made to supplement the basic descriptions with additional background information.)

NSS Committee Members and Chairs are unpaid, volunteer positions, serving two-year terms.  Most positions come with voting privileges.  Many volunteer expenses are tax-deductible.

If you are motivated to become a part of the exciting new developments in space and have the right stuff to help make NSS the premier voice for space advocates and enthusiasts, then now is the time to join the NSS leadership team!

Please send a resume or bio and cover letter or message listing position(s) of interest to the email address executive-search@nss.org by Sunday, November 30.

If you replied to the previous solicitation, you do not need to do so again.  Most of you have been contacted by at least one NSS leader and many of you are already engaged in our orientation meetings.

Note for existing NSS volunteers:  Feel free to use this soliciation to supplement the knowledge we have from your years of service to the Society.  There is a good chance that you have more skills and interests then we know about, especially if you have an interest in expanding your horizons and serving the Society in a different capacity.  What makes the NSS great is its ability to help members to grow into leaders of the space movement.

Thank you for all you do to advance the space movement.  Ad Astra!
