The National Association of Secretaries of State inducted its new slate of national officers for the 2011-2012 cycle on Monday. Alabama Secretary of State, and Greenville native, Beth Chapman will serve as president through July 2012, marking only the second time in the association’s 107-year history that an Alabama secretary of state has held the position.

“I am extremely honored to be playing a leadership role as we prepare for the next presidential election cycle and address key business-related issues at the state and federal levels,” Chapman said. “As secretaries of state across the country struggle to do more with less during these challenging economic times, the National Association of Secretaries of State will help them – and their constituents – weather the ups and downs of the economy by promoting the best in state government practices and fostering effective leadership.”

As a member of NASS, Chapman has been involved in military voting issues, civic education, small business outreach and international relations. She is also a member of the NASS Business Identity Theft Task Force, which was formed earlier this year to promote identity theft prevention strategies among the business community in every state.
