ACADAOS Executive Committee Highlights – May 1, 2015 Meeting

Hi everyone! Welcome to the end of the 2014-2015 school year! You did it and we made it. Yeah!! This meeting was our last before the transition meeting scheduled for late June or early July – be on the lookout for further information.

We had a visitor via “Carmen Connect” to share information with us regarding the Washington Academic Internship Program (WAIP) offered out of John Glenn College – here are the main ideas from our discussion with Katy Hogan:
• WAIP is open to any (major), junior/senior undergrads (standing based on earned credits)
• Need to be interested in public policy/public affairs – opportunities are in a variety of areas
• Apply; get interviewed and secure an internship in Washington, D.C.
• There is no program fee, housing and utilities are roughly $4000 (student’s responsibility), scholarships are available
• Contact Katy Hogan (hogan.124) or Chris Adams (adams.615) with questions

The ACADAOS Banquet was a SMASHING success — thank you to all who planned, executed, and helped with set-up and clean-up. A special congratulations to our award winners! Our tentative banquet date for next year is April 28, 2016 — SAVE the DATE!!

Thank-An-Advisor and Advisor Appreciation were two fantastic weeks this year. We had the chance to engage, celebrate our hard work, and get recognized for our efforts. You will have the opportunity to send feedback on these events – please make sure to do that!

The lunch meet-ups went well with 2 working parent lunches and 1 new/young professionals lunch — don’t want for an email, feel free to send one out to the group. If you’re eating lunch alone, it’s pretty much guaranteed there are other advisors eating alone as well, who would love to catch up with you and others.

Emails have been sent to nominate officers for the ACADAOS Executive Board (President, President-Elect, and Secretary). This is a GREAT way to get involved and connect with other advisors all over Ohio State and beyond. The nomination deadline is this Friday, May 8th!

Make sure to complete your Professional Development activities on Carmen – points will be awarded and prizes will be given out at the 2015 ACADAOS Kick-Off Event. Thank you to all of you who participated this year…you still have time through this summer to complete activities.

We will have 1-2 more social events in the near future – a happy hour and Clippers Game are possibilities…we would LOVE to see you there!

Good luck with Graduation and Orientation.
