It’s an honor to have the opportunity to serve you for the coming year. It is my goal to continue to build upon the strong foundation that our previous presidents have put in place. However, I can only do that with your help. KAPPA is only as strong as the contributions of its members and business partners.
So, as we work through the coming year together, I ask that everyone look for one additional thing that you can contribute. If you are planning to attend the next KAPPA conference, can you bring another colleague from your institution and get them involved? If you know of an institution that doesn’t participate in KAPPA, can you reach out and encourage them to participate? If you see a good educational presentation or speaker, can you make a Board member aware? Can you apply for a scholarship to take advantage of the APPA/ERAPPA educational opportunities? Can you develop a presentation for a future KAPPA conference? If you are aware of a Business Partner that offers something (goods/services) that would benefit the KAPPA membership, can you share the information? Or could you follow in my footsteps and take that leap from conference attendee to KAPPA officer?
I encourage you to get involved and look forward to seeing what our collective efforts can achieve this year, and hope to see you at the fall meeting!
