Greg Swistak is gone — but is he really? The Executive Committee of your association has asked Greg to stick around in an advisory capacity, and he has agreed. Thanks, Greg. I personally appreciate your help while we search for a new executive director.
Greg served as our executive director for almost two years. Under his leadership, our association took on a new air. We grew, increased committee involvement, renewed affiliations with other organizations, renamed our association and received national media exposure, with Greg representing us. His enthusiasm, dedication and hard work were an inspiration to those who worked closely with him. I am extremely glad he is not going away.
If we are fortunate, someone will nominate Greg for membership on our advisory board and he can continue as a leader from a different perspective — which brings me to the subject of the annual nominations and election of our advisory board.
You may send your nominations now to . Each nominee will be asked to send a response to a particular question, which will be published for all voting members to read before casting their ballots. Nominations will close Dec. 31. Voting will take place Jan. 15 - Feb. 15. Each member company will be able to cast one ballot. Results will be announced at our spring meeting.
Committed leadership is important to every organization, and this is particularly true for our association. We are going through some very interesting times, and the success of the Self-Service & Kiosk Association will depend on the individuals we select to lead. Please do not take the process lightly. Give it much thought, and nominate someone you know will be committed to spending the extra time to make a difference. And please vote.
