North American Power Sweeping Association
NAPSA: Mid-Year Update 2009by Ranger Kidwell-Ross
On December 1st of last year, the North American Power Sweeping Association (NAPSA) became professionally managed by a New Jersey-based management company named Association Headquarters, Inc. (AH).
NAPSA Board members voted to make the switch because they felt this new strategic partnership would help NAPSA bring more benefits, education and support to its efforts, as well as to NAPSA members.
AH's services include association management, convention management, public relations, government relations, creative services, Web site services, industry standardization/certification programs and administrative support.
In late July of 2009, we contacted NAPSA's Executive Director, Sarah Gazi, for an audio update on the progress that NAPSA has made since then.
In addition to a new website address and content at www.powersweeping.org, the NAPSA membership has reached 325 members. For the details, we invite you to listen to the approximately 9-minute interview with Ms. Gazi. She discusses the different parts of the new website, the restructuring of the NAPSA Board that took place early this year, and the work of NAPSA's committees.
