Important: Please Vote FOR the NPCA By-Law Changes

Ken Hill, Chair, NPCA Board.

Those who know me are aware of my strong views about the National Peace Corps Association: what it is, what it can be, and what we need to do to move forward.. While honored to be elected Chair of the NPCA Board, I recognize the significant challenges we face to realize NPCA’s potential.

The last couple of years has brought dramatic, albeit not always obvious, progress. We have literally re-built the foundation of the NPCA, including:

The challenge ahead is to implement the plan! To make progress, we must simplify our structure for governing the NPCA. Changes to the by-laws of the NPCA have been developed to do just this. The Board of Directors and the Group Leaders have overwhelmingly approved these proposed changes.


Members of the NPCA will be asked to vote on these changes. Members will have a month to register their votes electronically or by mail. I strongly encourage all NPCA members to vote in favor of these changes.

The NPCA website provides a description of the changes including a related FAQ section. If members have any additional questions I will try to personally answer them:

Please vote!


Ken Hill

Chair of the Board, NPCA

Kerry reaches out to Returned Volunteers Kerry reaches out to Returned Volunteers
The Kerry campaign wants the RPCV vote. Read our interview with Dave Magnani, Massachusetts State Senator and Founder of "RPCVs for Kerry," and his answers to our questions about Kerry's plan to triple the size of the Peace Corps, should the next PC Director be an RPCV, and Safety and Security issues. Then read the "RPCVs for Kerry" statement of support and statements by Dr. Robert Pastor, Ambassador Parker Borg, and Paul Oostburg Sanz made at the "RPCVs for Kerry" Press Conference.

RPCV Carl Pope says the key to winning this election is not swaying undecided voters, but persuading those already willing to vote for your candidate to actually go to the polls.

Take our poll and tell us what you are doing to support your candidate.

Finally read our wrap-up of the eight RPCVs in Senate and House races around the country and where the candidates are in their races.

Never will I give to this organization. They do nothing for RPCV's and Ken Hill is part of the problem, not the solution.
