Response by Jorge Nogueira, Director-at-Large
The best way for me to answer this is to recount my own experience….
5 years ago, someone asked me what I thought of the NJSRC. My response was, “It’s the same group of people…We need new blood”. I realized that my observation was a problem that I helped create. Of course it’s the same group of people….no “new blood” is volunteering to get involved. So that is what I did…. I started attending meetings, contributing to the discussions, and soon thereafter becoming a board member.
The board DOES need “new blood”… Get involved, get your fellow RTs involved, nominate, and most importantly…VOTE. You have a voice and the power to change the “status quo”….Use it!!
