What Is OPSEC?
In accordance with the OPS By-Laws, the Nomination Committee is seeking nominations for eight (8) vacant or soon to be vacant Directors to serve on the OPS National Board of Directors. Four terms are two-year terms, and four terms are three-year terms. Those nominated must be OPS members in good standing.
Specifically, in order to fulfill its mission as stated (see: www.opsecsociety.org) OPS needs highly motivated OPSEC professionals that would like to bring their talents and experience to the OPS. We are seeking individuals that would be willing to become Directors first, but also need some of those Directors so serve as Officers (President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary). Preference will be given to personnel living or working in the Northern Virginia, Maryland or Washington D.C. area. This will help OPS leverage its contacts within the Beltway area.
Send a nomination to include the name, title, email, phone number and a short 150-word biography of qualifications to email@example.com, with a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 15 March 2014.
The election is scheduled for May 2014
