Regional Officers

Contact may be made directly with the Regional Officers.  Addresses and other contact information for Regional Officers can be found in the NASM Directory.

For such purposes as may arise from time to time, the membership of the Association is divided into nine regions. Each region has an elected Chair, Vice Chair, and Secretary.

The Chair presides at all meetings of the Region and serves on the Board of Directors of the Association. The Vice Chair serves as advisor to the Chair and substitutes for the Chair in his/her absence or inability to serve. Normally, the Vice Chair is nominated as Chair at the expiration of his/her term as Vice Chair. The Secretary is responsible for transmitting the minutes of regional meetings to the Regional Chair, the Vice President, and the Executive Director.

Meetings of representatives of member institutions in the regions take place as follows:

  • An annual meeting concurrent with, and part of, the general Annual Meeting of the Association.
  • Informal local consultation among member schools with common problems. Such consultations may result in recommendations for regional or national consideration.
  • Meetings of representatives of member schools in any region may be called from time to time as need arises, on request of one or more members. The Regional Chair may call such a meeting if 50% or more of the member schools in the region concur as to the need. Action is limited to regional problems, and shall not contravene the policies, procedures, or other decisions of the National Association.
  • Regional Meetings may be called at the request of the Board of Directors.
