As all of us continue to get back to our daily responsibilities after another great annual national NASPA conference, I want to take a moment to reflect on what it means to me to have went from serving our NASPA members in region IV-E & region II as a SAFER KC representative to now the incoming national SAFER KC chair-elect.
It has been an awesome journey that I do not take for granted. I am looking forward to collaborating with you on new ideas within our Knowledge Community. From the heart, the wonderful NASPA leaders both regional and national have provided me with tools and experiences that I will take on my journey graciously.
From our SAFER KC founding chair Shane Carlin to now Dr. Glenn Gittings, we have come a long way from being known as a new KC. “Save the Date” July 28 – July 30, 2016 in Columbus, OH (Ohio State University and the Hyatt Regency Columbus) you & I including many others will come together with purpose as student affairs fundraising professionals. The purpose of the 2016 NASPA Student Affairs Fundraising Conference is to share and exchange strategies, ideas, and resources, and to discuss issues related to student affairs fundraising and external relations. The conference promotes an exchange of best practices. It is designed for professionals who currently have development responsibilities specifically in student affairs and for professionals with backgrounds and experience in either student affairs or development. Don’t let the school year come to an end without submitting your proposal and registering for our 2016 SAFER KC conference https://www.naspa.org/events/2016safc.
Rachelle Conley, SAFER KC Chair-Elect & Region II KC Representative
