What could make the highly lauded John Perez, an attorney with over 20 years of process server experience, step down from his position on the Board of NAPPS?
The name John Perez is well known throughout the process serving industry, with a long list of accomplishments to his name including:
- Past president of NAPPS
- Past President and current Director of the New Jersey Professional Process Servers Association (NJPPSA)
- Author of the Professional Process Servers Guides to Service of Process in New Jersey, New York and Florida
- Co-chair of the New York State Professional Process Servers Association (NYSPPSA) Education Committee and speaker at NYSPPSA educational seminars
John even added another accomplishment to his list at the NAPPS convention, receiving the Donald C. ‘Mac’ McDonald award. This award is the highest honor by NAPPS and given out yearly to a process server who goes above and beyond what is expected. The inscriptions on this award reads:
“In appreciation for the uncompromising dedicated service, exceptional visionary insight and focused unwavering leadership for the betterment of the National Association of Professional Process Servers”
These words certainly describe John, who has added so much to our profession and through his actions at the convention he exemplified this award yet again, showing his ‘unwavering leadership for the betterment’ of NAPPS.
While in Boston John proposed a motion that would open two more positions on the board for directors. These two positions would provide the opportunity for new blood and new ideas, which he felt NAPPS could greatly benefit from.
The motion was ultimately denied.
No one was prepared for what happened next. In an emotional moment for all John stepped down as Director of NAPPS to open up a position on the board, maintaining that it was time for new voices to be heard.
While his valuable input will certainly be missed from the Board it serves to show there are many who are extremely dedicated to making NAPPS into the best association possible, one that serves its members through the changing times.
Thank you John for all that you continue to do for NAPPS.
