NAMIWalks is a huge success!
Check out all the pictures from this past Saturday’s Walk on our Walk page. It was a beautiful day for a stroll in San Antonio. We had Sheriff Pamerleau, Chief McManus, Miss International Texas, and of course our host for the event, Gordon Hartman.

The 2015 NAMI Annual meeting will be on held during our General Meeting on October 13, 2015. During the annual meeting active members will be voting to fill two board vacancies. Individuals who have an active membership with NAMI-SAT as of July 1, 2015 are eligible to vote. Each membership is one vote. If you are not sure if you are an active member please contact the NAMI office so that we can verify your membership status. If your membership has lapsed or you want to join NAMI-SAT you can join/renew online at www.nami-sat.org prior to July 1st.
Active members who are interested in becoming a board candidate should contact the NAMI office at (210) 734-3349 to request an application. Interested candidates must submit their application prior to Saturday, August 29, 2015. Each application will be reviewed by a nomination committee composed of 2 board members and a representative from our general membership.
A needs assessment was completed earlier to help guide the nominating committee on board member areas of need and expertise. These areas include housing, finances, education and fundraising experience. The ideal board candidates will be selected based on subject matter expert ability to fulfill NAMI-SAT’s mission. Board member responsibilities include, but are not limited to, setting up the organizational direction, ensuring that the organization has the necessary financial resources and providing oversight of programs and services. After the nominating committee has identified candidates that fulfill needs assessment criteria and are current members of the organization, the nomination committee will submit a ballot recommendation to the board of directors for approval.
If anyone has questions about board members duties and responsibilities please contact the office at (210) 734-3349) so that a member of the nominating committee can contact you.
