The Vice President shall preside over all meetings of the North Star Pickleball Association or the Board at which the President is not present. The Vice President shall be the primary board contact with the staff regarding the Ambassador program.

Director of Intermediate Play

Secretary

 The Secretary shall record the Bylaws and minutes of meetings of the Board. Storage of official Board documents shall be within the Board Private file and jointly managed by the President. The Secretary shall perform such other duties as may be assigned by the President or the Board. 

Requirements for Nomination

How to Recommend a NSPA Member

To recommend someone for a position, send sara@northstarpickleballassociation.com an email by December 31 with the recommended persons’ names and the positions you are recommending them for. For example, 

My recommendations for the upcoming election are: James Bond for Vice President, Clark Kent for Secretary and Leia Skywalker – Director of Intermediate play. 

You do not have to recommend someone for each position.
