In just over a week many of us will be converging on Philadelphia for NASPA’s annual conference. If you’re attending the annual conference, I hope you’ll make plans to join us at the following NASPA 2 events:
Monday, March 5:
8:00am - 9:00am: Region II VPSA Breakfast (Sheraton Philadelphia Downtown, Freedom Ballroom E)
5:15pm - 6:15pm: Region II Business Meeting (Convention Center, 122B)
9:00pm - 11:00pm: Region II Reception (Sheraton Philadelphia Downtown, Liberty Ballroom D)
Tuesday, March 6:
5:30pm - 6:30pm: Administrators of Color Reception (Marriott Downtown, Regional Suite, TBD)
6:30pm - 7:30pm: Volunteer Reception (Marriott Downtown, Regional Suite, TBD)
6:30pm - 7:30pm: MMI Reception (Marriott Downtown, Regional Suite, TBD)
Additionally, there are several opportunities currently available to serve on the NASPA2 Advisory Board. You can view these opportunities through the Volunteer Central site here. If you have questions, I am happy to speak with you further about your interest while we’re in Philly or by phone.
If you’re a mid-level manager with more than five years experience in the field, you should apply to participate in this summer’s NASPA2 Min-Managers Institute (MMI) June 25-29 in Buffalo, NY. MMI provides an intensive, four-day professional development opportunity for professionals looking to advance in their career. Apply here.
Finally, I hope you’re making plans to join us for what promises to be NASPA2’s biggest regional conference ever in New York City June 3-5. I’m excited to announce that acclaimed journalist Melissa Harris-Perry and comedian Hari Kondabolu are this year’s featured speakers. Register today.
As always, please contact me with questions, comments or suggestions. I look forward to seeing many of you in Philadelphia in a little over a week!
