  1. 1. Navy Counselors Association, Inc APRIL 2010 NEWS LETTER NCA National Officers NCCM(SW/AW/IUSS) CYNTHIA REYNOLDS (President) NCCS(SW/AW) KENNETH BOBEN (Vice President) NCC(SW) SHAKILAH VERNER (Secretary) NC1(AW) JOHNA ARMINTIA (Treasurer)
  2. 2. Words from the NCAPresident Spring is Here! I would like to focus on a few things that we have been doing and what you all have been doing as well. Besides the planting of flowers and vegetables, many of you have been hard at work, doing what we in the career counseling world do every day. We read all the NAVADMIN’s and instructions, interpret and provide information to our Sailors, and keep abreast of the changes that affect our personnel every day. Your National Officers have been busy doing the same thing for the Navy Counselor Association, Inc. Rewriting the By Laws has been the most important thing we could have taken on this year and they are just about ready for the lawyer to review before I sign them. Many leaders from the JAG community, Senior Navy Counselor Leadership, Navy Personnel Command, Navy Total Force, Local Chapter Presidents and friends, have all helped with this very large project for which we are very appreciative. I hope you all read through them thoroughly. Each year after the Annual Event, it is the responsibility of the new officers to review the By Laws for updates and changes. Each NCA member has the right to make recommendations for change. Let’s live outside the box, break the paradigm and take the NCA into the Twenty teens. You/we are the future of the NCA. Lastly, I ask that you read the eligibility requirements for Annual membership, Lifetime member, Scholarship application, Career Counselor of the Year nominee, and requirements for becoming a National Officer. Each is in the By Laws and also linked in this newsletter for you to be sure that you completely understand the eligibility requirements. I look forward to seeing all of you in June. This will be an event to remember! Very respectfully, NCCM Cynthia Reynolds, NCA President, president@usnca.org
  3. 3. Words from the NCAVice President Hello All, As we draw closer to June, I would like to remind everyone to plan ahead. Please submit your travel request and register for the 22nd Annual National Navy Counselors Association, Inc., Professional Development and Training Symposium. My position as the National Vice President has proved to be very busy, yet very rewarding at the same time, as displayed through the release of several newsletters since being elected. My personal goal is and will always be to take care of Sailors! As Navy Leaders and Career Counselors this should be our number one priority! As stated in every newsletter since Aug 2009, one of my primary duties as the NCA National Vice President is to be the principle liaison between the Local Chapter Presidents, the NCA National officers, and our NCA members. We currently have 11 local NCA chapters operating around the fleet with our newest chapter being Pensacola FL. We welcome Pensacola to the team! In closing, I always must recognize the local chapter President's for taking care of Sailors in the Fleet. All 11 Chapters have been very active this year. The newest Chapter is planning a fund raising event for the NCA Scholarship. Please read all about their Chapter events and more of my comments later in this newsletter. V/r NCCS Kenneth Boben CNSL Force Counselor National NCA Vice President vicepresident@usnca.org
