    In today’s world, likability is everything. First impressions happen quickly, and the more likable you are, the better impression you’ll leave. Don’t freak out – I’ve got you. I’m going to help shape you into an extremely likable creature. During this webinar I’ll go over my networking model – focusing both on how to meet people and also how to win them over once you do. I’ll also take some time to give you tips on how to maximize the regional conferences and ever-exciting TPE experiences. Networking tends to have a scary connotation, and my goal is to help you see it as a fun and rewarding experience. And if that doesn’t work, I’ll teach you how to fake it until you make it! :) This is going to be an entertaining and interactive webinar, so bring your questions/enthusiasm and let’s learn to network like champs!

  • Members: All
    Regions: All
    Target Audience: All
    Diversity and inclusion are important aspects of campus activities. Even so, it can seem challenging to develop a strategy for incorporating diversity and inclusion into your daily practice. NACA® Competencies for Diversity and Inclusion provide a guideline to make planning and implementing initiatives more manageable. Because campus activities professionals are so passionate about the students we serve, it is no surprise that our efforts are primarily focused on students. Whether a new campus activities professional, a seasoned professional, or somewhere in between, it is equally as important that we are intentional about taking time to focus on our own professional development – not only so we can serve students better, but also so we can advance our careers and the profession. Attendees will be introduced to the new Competencies for Campus Activities Professionals developed by the Education Advisory Group and will reflect on ways they can utilize the competencies for professional development.
