Fall is here, bringing with it numerous opportunities to fulfill our missions on campuses across the country. Tailgates and ballgames…prospective student tours…fall publications…end of year giving—the list goes on and on. Hopefully something you’ve learned through your connections with NAADA is helping you steward these activities and relationships better than ever.
The NAADA Board eagerly seeks to fulfill its mission as well. At our fall meeting (St. Paul, September 22-23), we spent a portion of our time drawing on the creativity theme from last summer’s conference. We sought to establish annual objectives using the past as a foundation and the future as an open road. To me, this is one of the most crucial ideals an association such as ours can have: respecting the past while focusing on the future.
