Last month I shared with you my belief that at the crux of our professions lies the act of stewardship. We steward students, messaging, relationships, finances, even the future. As a new academic year begins on our many campuses, I hope this thought resonates with you and provides numerous opportunities to engage in this unique act of service, all proving beneficial to your organization and you as a professional.
Within NAADA, one of the premier ways in which we seek benefits is through stewardship of one another. When a member hears of a new idea, she may implement it on her campus. When someone at one institution better understands how to add a special touch to a program, he shares it with a NAADA colleague. This has a multiplication effect that impacts all of us for the better.
