2020 has been a year that has taken so much from us, but I also think it has given us extensive opportunities to grow. Our sense of normal was unhinged, we began the WFH life, we made masks, bought out all of the toilet paper and hand sanitizer, became Zoom experts, spent more time with our families, and hopefully, we reflected. We reflected not only where we’re at personally but where we’re at as a society, and how we can forge ahead to create meaningful change. As we reflect on what it means to be a part of our communities, our universities, and our organizations, we must all recognize that listening and learning is crucial to the expedition ahead.
As we embark on the next part of our journey into the fall semester, I encourage you to continue that reflection and utilize this network of supporters to help drive your action as together, we forge ahead. While we’ve navigated the uncharted territory
of moving to an online life, we look forward to bringing the NAADA family back together for an expedition to beautiful Portland, Oregon in 2021!
In this 2021 conference kickoff email, you will find some fun and helpful resources to help you prepare for this upcoming expedition. On behalf of our great organization, forge ahead!

We cannot wait to see the NAADA family in Portland! Take a look at what you can look forward to in this vibrant city.
Resources to prepare you as we continue to forge ahead:
Nominate your dynamic alumni to be a Keynote Speaker for our Expedition to Portland!
With NAADA playing host to our 2021 conference, we need our member institutions to help us connect with Portland-area alumni to lead our three keynote speaker sessions.
This is a great opportunity for alumni and donor cultivation and stewardship. Who of your best and brightest can share an impactful message to align with our theme “Forge Ahead”?
Please send suggestions to Jamie Lucero (email@example.com) no later than September 1, 2020.
