Nebraska State Treasurer Don Stenberg was elected Midwestern regional vice president of the National Association of State Treasurers (NAST) at the association’s annual meeting.
New officers were elected Monday to serve on the 2015 NAST Executive Committee. The newly elected officers will begin their terms on January 1.
Stenberg, who was elected Nebraska state treasurer in 2010, also is senior vice president of the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators (NAUPA), a national association of state officials charged with collecting unclaimed property and reuniting it with its owners.
At the NAST annual meeting, Tennessee State Treasurer David H. Lillard Jr. was elected president of NAST; Washington State Treasurer James L. McIntire was elected senior vice president; and Oklahoma State Treasurer Ken Miller was elected secretary-treasurer.
Other newly elected vice presidents in addition to Stenberg are the following:
Treasurer Lillard will succeed 2014 NAST president, Utah State Treasurer Richard Ellis, who will continue to serve on the Executive Committee as immediate past president.
"I am honored that my colleagues have chosen me to lead this great organization," Treasurer Lillard said. "For nearly four decades, NAST has been a resource that state treasurers and other top financial officials have used to help them perform their jobs more effectively and better serve their constituents."
NAST is the premier organization that provides advocacy and support for state treasurers and treasury staffs throughout the United States and its territories.
