Brown Bag Lunch: Professional Organization Involvement

Thank you to those who attended the Brown Bag Lunch: Professional Organization Involvement today! We had a wonderful discussion and were able to share some helpful resources.

We would like to give a special thanks to Amy Treboni, Brittany Crall, Katie Bush-Glenn, and Amanda Crall who participated as panel members sharing their experiences, perspectives, and advice based on their involvement in a variety of organizations and committees.

For those of you unable to attend, here are some key takeaways:

  • Signing up for volunteer opportunities are a great way to start becoming involved in an organization. For instance, Rachel Tuttle suggests those who are interested in joining the Ohio College Personnel Association (OCPA) start by volunteering at the conference first. Then, you can apply to be part of the conference planning committee or the executive board when applications go out in February/March. This conference is in Worthington, so travel is convenient!
  • If you are interested in presenting at a conference, volunteering to review educational session submissions is a way to learn more about what review committees are looking for and identifying characteristics of a strong proposal. You can then apply what you have learned to creating your own proposals.
  • One of the biggest advantages to participating on a campus committee or in an organization is the opportunity to network with your peers both on campus and at other institutions.

For more information on organizations you can get involved with, visit the ACADAOS website. If you are interested in getting more involved with ACADAOS, please contact Amanda Crall.

If you have suggestions for future professional development programs or topics, please email Stephanie Elliott or Nancy Coscia, Professional Development Committee Co-Chairs.

ACADAOS Workshop Series: Conference Proposal Ideas

In November, members of ACADAOS attended a workshop focused on brainstorming ideas for presentation proposals that could be submitted by advisors who were interested in presenting at various conferences. Sometimes, coming up with an idea can be the hardest part, so we thought we would share some of the ideas that were discussed (see below). Moving forward, we will be hosting a second workshop focused on how to write proposals for submission. This workshop will be held on Wednesday, January 24th from 3:30-5:00pm in Enarson 311. If you are interested in presenting on a topic listed below and/or are looking for others to present with, we would encourage you to contact Stephanie Elliott (elliott.302@osu.edu), so she can connect those who are interested in certain topics as soon as possible (especially if the conference you are considering requires submissions prior to the January 24th workshop).
