NAPE President September Speech

Dr. James Edet, FNAPE; NAPE President


Dear NAPE Member,

It is a privilege to have the opportunity to welcome you to September, the ninth month in year 2022.

I am deeply humbled by the growing level of commitment you keep putting in to ensure our continuous success.

I would like to specially thank all those who nominated themselves or were nominated for the executive positions ahead of the 2022/23 elections. I recognise that selfless volunteering can be a step out of our comfort zone, but it remains extremely rewarding to be a part of growth, whilst also benefiting from such leadership dynamics and learning. I am hopeful that we will continue to get better in this regard.

The elections voting is now on, I urge you actively participate in this process, adhere to the electoral rules and guidelines, to ensure we have a smooth and fair election process. Do make your voice through your vote count.

Our 40th Annual International Conference and Exhibition planning is underway. This is a very significant event and the President-elect, Mr. Elliot Ibie FNAPE continues to lead this effort. Together with the conference planning committee, all hands are on deck to assure us of an incredible outing and milestone celebration.

My plea is that you consider ways to be a part of this, and extend to them your support as needed.

Finally, I sincerely thank you for your confidence in this association.

I encourage you to continually stay driven by professional conducts, adapt your knowledge, talent, expertise and resources to improve yourself, organisation and this association. Be a part of making NAPE fit for now, fit for the future.

I wish you a good September.

Yours in Service.

Dr. James Edet, FNAPE
NAPE President 2021/22
