NPM Council

The NPM Council has two purposes: to elect members to the Board of Directors and to advise and guide the Board on the direction of the Association. The Council is composed of one representative from each division and standing committee. It also includes a number of representatives elected by the members of NPM by mail ballot. Some of the elected members serve as chairs of committees of operation.
