With the 2018 Annual Conference happening in just a few weeks, I wanted to take a quick moment at highlight the NASPA Foundation. Many of us in Region V contribute to the Foundation for different reasons, but I give because I’ve been blessed with a great career filled with amazing students and colleagues, and because smarter and creative people have been willing to advise and mentor me along the way. No matter your reason, it is a tremendous way of sustaining and honoring our profession.
If you are able to attend the conference in Philadelphia, you’ll certainly see me at the various Region V events and meetings encouraging colleagues to support the Foundation with a financial contribution. You’ll never get an argument from me about any contribution made via the NASPA Foundation website – http://www.naspa.org/foundation/naspa-gives -- but for those in Philly, I’m certainly going to make it as easy as possible. Throughout the conference, Region V volunteers and I will “trading” a minimum $10 contribution for the classy and incredibly cool “HIGH FIVE” buttons. They were all the rage at the Western Regional Conference and go from professional to casual dress so perfectly. If we sell the remaining buttons in Philly, that will generate nearly $2,000 for the Foundation.
I look forward to seeing y’all at the conference and even more to your support and contributions. Be well.
