From the President

I am honored to serve as your 2021 NERA president. You may notice that I have signed all of my e-mails with "Your NERA President." This is purposeful—as I ran for this position with the goal of listening to and working with you all, because as a team, collectively, we can ensure NERA has continued growth and success in the coming years. On that note, I will start this message with a request for any and all of you to reach out with feedback you may have to enrich the organization. NERA is great because of its wonderful community, and your input will help maintain this. 

I want to take this opportunity to thank NERA’s 2020 President Ross Markle and the NERA 2020 conference co-chairs, read more
