  • Graphics & Desktop Publishing – We’re looking for someone with graphics skills and the necessary software to assist with publications, rack cards, product design, etc.

Volunteers Needed for NAI Region 7 Strategic Plan

Do you have planning experience? Are you interested in learning more about strategic planning? Or, perhaps you just have a strong interest in the future of NAI Region 7 and want to voice your opinion?  If so, we have something that might interest you. Region 7′s existing strategic planning document is out-of-date. We need a new strategic plan and the the Region’s leadership team is looking to put together a group of folks to make this happen in 2013.  If you would like to lead (or just get involved) in this important work, please contact us at here.
