About Board Bulletin. We have decided to communicate with members directly through a regular “Board Bulletin” that will be easily identified as coming from the FGNA Board of Directors. We welcome your comments.
Two new members were appointed to the Board of Directors on February 7. Please join us in welcoming Anita Noone and Arne Heayn. They will attend their first Board meeting on February 26.
Anita Noone. Anita is a fairly new practitioner, but brings to her practice a phenomenal energy. She has advised and sat with boards on a regular basis, and participated on committees and working groups. Anita also brings us her past training as a lawyer. Anita’s term ends in the 3rd quarter, 2013.
Arne Heayn. Arne is originally from Edmonton, Canada and now lives in Cancun, Mexico. Arne is not new to board work nor to volunteering for FGNA—he was on the FGNA Board from 1998 to 2000. Arne’s term ends in the 3rd quarter, 2014.
As we reported in the first Board Bulletin, we hired an independent consultant, Kay Sohl, to assess the strengths and limitations of our organization in relation to implementing the goals of the strategic plan developed by the Board of Directors in January 2012. We also asked her to make recommendations regarding the key skill sets required in the Executive Director position and priorities for the first six months of the new ED’s tenure. The Board has just received her draft report and will begin to discuss it at the February 26 Board meeting. Stay tuned for more updates on the recommendations and plans for implementation.
