NASPA Florida

Region III

On this website you will find information about ways to get involved in our state, such as Knowledge Communities and presenting presentations or case studies.  We also have our quarterly state newsletter, information concerning our annual fall state drive-in conference, and professional contacts that are here to serve you and your institution.



What is NASPA-FL?

NASPA-FL is the state connection for NASPA members.  Our purpose is to help you with your professional development and networking needs within the state of Florida through a variety of different professional development opportunities.

How do I join NASPA-FL?

You are automatically considered a member of NASPA-FL when you join NASPA.  There are membership options, but the best value is an institutional membership, which allows all staff members on your campus to purchase individual membership at a discounted cost. 

How do I get involved in NASPA-FL?

It is easy to get involved in NASPA-FL! Check out Volunteer Central on the NASPA page for a listing of available opportunities within the state to help build your professional network with colleagues who have similar interests. Whether you are looking for a short-term commitment, like a Drive-In Conference Program Reviewer, or a larger commitment like an Executive Board position, they will all be posted on Volunteer Central. Another great way to get involved is to attend the annual NASPA-FL Drive-In Conference on September 27-28 at Valencia College in Orlando, FL.

Message from State Director

Welcome to NASPA-FL!! As the second largest state organization within our amazing Region III, I and all the members of our Board, encourage you to take advantage of the many resources and connections we have available to you through your membership in NASPA. From becoming an active participant in one of our many state-level Knowledge Communities, to attending our annual Drive-In Conference, to taking on a volunteer leadership role on our newly redesigned Board, we have ways for everyone to be involved. If you’re not sure where to begin, feel free to contact me directly and I’ll be happy to connect you with whatever you’re looking for. We look forward to engaging with you and being your go-to resource for Student Affairs knowledge and information sharing.
