Running for a position on the NCSS Board of Directors is such a personal thing. Although each elected individual will serve as a representative for the organization, their reasons for running vary widely. For some, there is the desire to give back to the organization for years of excellent conferences and stellar journals; for others, it is to bring a voice to a specific constituency.
