NSP 2017 Elections Are Now Open — meet the “Slate of Five”

Once again it’s NSP Voting Season. The NH Region will feature many news articles on top of the website’s NEWS page during this period. Voting opens today and runs through the first day of December.

NSP just finished mailing the election insert in the Fall 2017 edition of SKI PATROL Magazine. Their goal is to inform you about all the candidates running for office. They also maintain a special website called “Meet the Candidates” where platforms are published. Please read about the candidates and consider contacting them with questions. Phone numbers and emails are published.

Eastern Division NSP has also begun a candidate information campaign to advocate for the election and reelection of the National Board Representatives from our local division. However, instead of advocating for just our local candidates, Eastern Division decided to review the nationwide candidates and encourage us all to vote for the best candidates with the best track record for guiding NSP into the future. They have chosen a geographically diverse “Slate of Five” candidates.
