Commitment to the NDSC/NDS future
National Docent Symposium Council (NDSC) 2016 Annual Meeting
Thirty-three NDSC members met in picturesque Montreal, Canada, October 5-6, 2016 for our annual planning and business meeting. The NDSC is an unusual organization, comprised of volunteer docents/guides who live in various parts of the US and Canada, who meet once a year and conduct business primarily by email.
So what holds this group together?
Commonality: Our commonality is to maintain and build on a solid foundation for future symposia and other NDSC sponsored educational opportunities. We voluntarily accept the responsibilities and requirements for a four year NDSC term of service that makes continuity possible. We are committed to the NDSC/NDS future.
Challenge: Our challenge as an organization is to ensure that the NDSC/NDS remains relevant and viable. We set our goals and objectives with an eye and ear focused on the future, with special attention given to managing our financial and human resources. We are committed to the NDSC/NDS future.
Teamwork: Our members are dedicated team players. Our strong suit is the broad base of leadership, experience and knowledge that thirty-three people bring to the table. Identifying issues and problem solving must be streamlined by teamwork when you have two short days to manage the next year's work. We are committed to the NDSC/NDS future.
