In late May, over 50 Region IV-West Student Affairs professionals met in Wichita, Kansas to plan the fall 2018 conference on-site at the Wichita Marriott and to develop plans for the future of the Region. In a snapshot, your Advisory Board:
And we discussed so much more! Since it was shared (not by Shana!) at the Advisory Board meeting, it’s only fair to make sure our region has heard the following: Where does a boat go when it is sick? …..To the dock! Board members have all kinds of information to share about what happened over the days we met in Wichita; please reach out if you have any questions about how your regional board is and can serve you! Many thanks to the Conference Committee & the Advisory Board for their leadership & commitment to the profession and our region!
The work continues long after the summer Advisory Board meeting—and we are looking for your feedback. NASPA is developing the 2019-2022 strategic plan. Phase One is gathering feedback from the regions. We want your thoughts on the following questions:
Please provide your feedback here: https://www.naspa.org/about . The results of this survey will be used in the NASPA National Advisory Board meeting in July to develop the Association’s goals for the next strategic plan.
Phase Two of strategic planning will occur at the regional conference in October. You can look forward to reviewing these goals and building objectives for the plan’s goals. The National Advisory Board will meet again in December for Phase Three and to develop the final outcomes, based on your feedback. It is our hope to continue gathering feedback until March of 2019, when the NASPA National Board hopes to approve the plan for launch in March 2019 at the NASPA Annual Conference in Los Angeles.
I am so proud of your fellow Regional Board members and the work they are doing on behalf of the Region. You can see the team on the NASPA Region IV-W website (https://www.naspa.org/constituent-groups/regions/region-four-west/roster), and make sure to engage on our Facebook page, Twitter, and Instagram feeds (@NASPA4W). We are here for you, ready with the cheesy jokes & full of information. Let us know what you’d like to see from your Regional Advisory Board!
Until next time,
Shana Warkentine Meyer
NASPA IV-West Regional Director
