SMACNA has instituted an association-wide communications program to increase the dialog between SMACNA chapters and the SMACNA leadership. This program is known as the Board of Directors Liaison Program.
Each SMACNA officer and director is assigned Board Liaison responsibility for a number of SMACNA chapters and state associations. The Board member is encouraged to establish regular communication with the chapters to enhance the exchange of information. Several key elements of the program include:
- identification of trends, problems and concerns;
- promotion of SMACNA programs and services; and
- implementation of SMACNA policies.
Chapters and state associations are asked to add their Board Liaison member to their regular mailing list, and issue regular invitations to them so they may attend chapter/state meetings to become familiar with the chapters and their members. Also, plan to set aside some time on the meeting agenda so your Board Liaison may address your group. If you have any specific topics you would like your Liaison to cover, please make note of that on the invitation request.
This document outlines the procedure for requesting your Board Liaison member to attend a chapter event, and a copy of the invitation form. All invitations for Board Liaison visits must be submitted through SMACNA National. SMACNA has found the Board Liaison Program to be a great tool in establishing a meaningful relationship between SMACNA’s leadership, local chapters and state associations. We encourage all of our chapters and state associations to contact their Board Liaison member and get to know them.
