Staff Changes Coming Soon

Dear Surveyors,

NCSS will have new staff leadership beginning May first.  For those of you who did not attend the Conference in Cherokee, you may not have heard that after 12 years, I am retiring on April 30th. The Board of Directors voted on February 18th to promote Sherri Barron as the new Executive Director.

Sherri has been with NCSS for more than 7 years. Those of you who have had the pleasure to work with her know what an excellent leader she will be.  She is intelligent, detail oriented and always calm under pressure.  I know she will continue the great momentum we have built moving forward in the years ahead. I am truly excited to see her get to stretch her wings over the next few years.  I know you all are in good hands.

I leave with mixed emotions.  I am excited to slow down a little, travel with my husband, and enjoy my eight grandchildren, but I will be sad to lose contact with many of you. This has been a wonderful experience. You placed a great deal of trust in me over the years and I hope I have honored that trust. I know I have given you my professional best and tried to serve you with integrity. I have learned so much from surveyors including how genuinely you care about the profession and those who follow in your footsteps.  However I'm still here until April 30th, so don't hesitate to reach out if I can help you in any way.

Executive Director, NCSS
