Nebraska State Treasurer Don Stenberg was elected Midwestern Region Vice President of the National Association of State Treasurers (NAST) this week at the association’s annual conference.
Elected president of NAST was Oklahoma State Treasurer Ken Miller. The new officers will begin their terms January 1. Other newly elected officers are Vermont Treasurer Beth Pearce, Senior Vice President, and Wyoming Treasurer Mark Gordon, Secretary-Treasurer. Washington Treasurer James McIntire is Past President.
Stenberg, who was elected Nebraska State Treasurer in 2010 and re-elected in 2014, is Past 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. NAUPA is a network of NAST.
Stenberg previously served as NAST Midwest Vice President in 2015.
As a regional vice president, Stenberg will be a member of NAST’s Executive Committee and will serve as the primary link between the committee and the state treasurers in the Midwest. He and the other regional vice presidents will help provide policy direction for the association and act on urgent matters until they can be addressed by the full membership.
NAST provides advocacy and support for state treasurers and treasury staffs throughout the United States and its territories.
