NAADA Connections


Happy Valley in June

Jillian StevensonWeather in the high 70s with cool evenings in the 60s...a perfect environment for the NAADA 2014 annual conference this year on the Penn State Campus (affectionately known as Happy Valley). Registration has launched, and early bird registration ends April 15, so be sure to register soon. We have two new exciting initiatives added this year—a special training for development newcomers and we are bringing back the college exhibits. These are great opportunities for learning and sharing resources, so please consider participating. Lots of excitement taking place here in preparation for your visit to our campus—hope to see you here in June!

Jillian Stevenson
NAADA President

Pre-Conference Workshop: Strengths Based Leadership are excited to offer a great pre-conference workshop focused on learning about your top five strengths and how to leverage them at work and in your daily life. What do you think your top five strengths are? Analytical, discipline, futuristic, harmony, positivity, self-assured, or maybe strategic? Space for the Strengths Based Leadership workshop is limited so register early.
