Region I State and Province Director Nominations

NASPA Region I is currently seeking nominations for State/Province Directors to serve on the Region I Advisory Board. State and Province Directors are the stewards of the NASPA state and province-level association. Through their service, they ensure the continuation of an effective and quality professional organization.

State Director Responsibilities

State/Province Directors provide state leadership for NASPA Region I and represent the interests of student affairs professionals in their state to the Region I Advisory Board. They also play a key role in the recruitment and retention of NASPA members within their state:

Provide NASPA membership pamphlets at any membership events.
  • Support the regional and national initiatives of NASPA.
  • Convey information to the membership of NASPA, as requested. This includes ensuring that the state/province/European website is current and regular contributions to the Region I Newsletter are submitted.
