We will have some breakfast snacks available and be giving attendees the opportunity to provide ideas and feedback on the next book! While an RSVP is not required, if you know you plan to attend, please complete this quick RSVP, so we can have an idea of attendance numbers.

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if you didn’t read the book or were unable to participate in online discussions!

NACADA Webinar: Incorporating Coaching Conversations into Academic Advising Practice

The ACADAOS Professional Development Committee is currently working on our Spring 2019 calendar, and we hope to get that to you soon. In the meantime, I wanted to share with you an opportunity in February to put on your calendars. We will be viewing and discussing the February NACADA Webinar: Incorporating Coaching Conversations into Academic Advising Practice at 2pm in Hayes Hall 025 on February 6th. All members are welcome, and we would be happy if you would join us for a viewing of the webinar and discussion. If you are planning to attend, we ask that you complete the short registration form, so we can make sure our space is large enough to accommodate attendees: https://osu.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_24tUskZPcijqo3b.

The handouts for the web event can be found at the following link: http://www.nacada.ksu.edu/Events-Programs/Events/Web-Events/Web-Event-Handouts.aspx closer to the event. We ask that you either print or download your own copy before attending as we will not be printing handouts for the viewing and discussion.

Please mark your calendars and let the Professional Development Committee know if you have any questions. Thanks, and hopefully we will see you at the event!

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.
