Over the next few weeks you are going to hearing from some of the Parent and Family Relations KC Leadership Team about why they joined the PFRKC.  Each of us has a unique journey that brought us here.  If you are interested in joining our PFRKC team, please see our open positions HERE.

"As my engagement with the NASPA organization has steadily increased over the past four years, I appreciate the forum that NASPA creates to connect and share best practices with colleagues across the nation. By electing to serve in various leadership positions I have enjoyed the opportunity to not only participate in the sharing of knowledge but also cultivate spaces for sharing knowledge, both digitally and in-person. With the shift in family involvement trends, due to the rising cost of college among other factors, I am able to help increase visibility and awareness for parent and family populations. Furthermore, I am able to leverage my leadership role to share in the efforts that my institution and others across the nation are putting forth to meet the needs of this group. I highly recommend getting a leadership role for any new, or seasoned, member of the profession.  Ultimately, getting involved in leadership has helped me become a better advocate for the constituency I serve in my daily work, develop a network within the field, and most importantly feel like a highly competent and knowledgeable SA professional!
