Newly elected NABE board president delivers message
from Eudes Budhai
It was indeed a pleasure to be among you this extended weekend. I thank you all for having the faith in me to lead us forward and continue the work that was established in previous years, especially that of Dr. Rossana Boyd. Our retreat was beneficial and appropriate for the beginning of our year. Although many of us worked together last year, I found it beneficial and rewarding. I learned a great deal about many of you.
Although not new to NABE, we welcome our great addition to our family, Josie Tinajero, Mariella Herold and Jose Fernandez (Parent rep). During our meeting, we made many decisions and held open discussions regarding pivotal agenda items. As we move forward, I would like to use the "No fault, Consensus, and Collaboration" model to making informed decisions. I would like to request that we follow a process for responding to emails from individuals or organizations outside of NABE. All correspondence should come from the president (designee) or the executive director. This would facilitate that we are informed and have been provided with sufficient time to assess how NABE should respond. Our executive director normally responds by indicating "This is a great opportunity and ensures that the board would get back to them immediately."
