The NATP Annual Meeting was held the afternoon of June 22. New board members elected include Curtis Richter, west region; Cliff Lindell, east region; and Pam Arterburn, at-large director. During the Board of Directors meeting following the annual meeting, Nikki Pinkelman was elected president; Pam Arterburn as treasurer; and Cecelia Grotz as secretary.

During an awards luncheon, NATP honored two individuals for their service and commitment with the following awards:

Wednesday evening attendees were invited to play miniature golf and network. The North Fork Area Transit provided their trolley to transport attendees from the hotel to downtown Norfolk.
