When my grandson was about 3 years old he climbed to the top of a very tall slide. Upon reaching the top he realized that he couldn't get down, where upon he calmly stated, "A little help up here, please." NKTA is now in that same position. We have climbed many ladders as cited in the president's report. Now we too calmly ask, "a little help, please." Many of our board members started 7-9 years ago; attrition and burnout are showing. We need an infusion of new ideas and enthusiasm. We currently have 4 vacant board positions, including needing a secretary and a treasurer. In addition we need help with communications (so newsletters can be prepared more regularly) and help organizing volunteers.
