NASG Leadership Contributions

Since the NASG is an all-volunteer organization, it can only continue to thrive thanks to the donation of time and money of its membership. Some individuals rise to the occasion and perform a leadership role within the organization for a period of time. On this page we wish to list those whom have taken on that extra responsibility over the years. The purpose of this page is to not only recognize those who have done this extra work, but also to maintain a concise record for future generations of NASG members. The small "d" after the name indicates that the person has passed away (either while in office or afterwards).

The members of the NASG Board of Trustees (BOT) are elected by the general NASG membership. The NASG BOT then fills the appointed positions with NASG members who volunteer their time and services (some of these positions may be compensated due to extraordinary time and costs involved).
