Happy new (academic year)! Hopefully you had a restorative and or productive summer and a smooth opening to the school year. While summer time is a great time for strategic planning and reflection, I miss the students and look forward to implementing my goals and “new year’s resolutions”. Though many of these resolutions are focused on serving our students, I have a few that are focused on bettering myself as a professional. This is one reason I value NECHA and the professional development opportunities available through our annual conference and through volunteering on the Board of Directors.
Just as summer can be a time for reflection and a time to recharge, I have always found participating in the annual conference to do the same. There is something truly exciting about being surrounded by colleagues who truly “get what you do”. The level of excitement and engagement can’t be beat. With this in mind, I hope you consider joining us at our combined annual meeting with NYSCHA in Burlington Vermont. Lauri Gallimore, our President-elect, and her team have created an exciting agenda! This year’s conference theme, Bridging the Gap: Collaborating to Succeed truly embodies how the synergies of our collective expertise, whether we are a medical provider, mental health provider, or educator contribute to our professional success and the care our students receive. It also shows that it “takes a village” of professionals to raise many well students.
As I am coming to the end of term as president, I would be remiss to not acknowledge how much serving on the board has also provided me with professional development and fulfillment. We have several open positions including a Two-year Member-at-Large position, Secretary, Treasurer and President-Elect. Please also consider this wonderful opportunity to collaborate with college health professionals from around the region. The reward of connecting with colleagues is far greater than the actual level of commitment. You can email me if you have any questions about the board or our open positions. To express interest in one of our open positions, please fill out form here.
I look forward to connecting with you, celebrating our collective accomplishments and discussing resolutions and goals in Burlington.
