NACADA Region Review

The Region Division is charged to do a complete and thorough examination of NACADA’s present region structure and how it serves our members.

NACADA’s Region Division has been charged to embark upon a review similar to those the Administrative and Advising Communities Divisions recently completed. This review is being conducted to determine how to provide the best possible professional development to members. We are taking the time to reflect on what it means to be a global organization in relationship to the regional structure. 

The Process

The Region Review Work Group is currently compiling data and preparing a final report due Spring 2020.

INFORMATION GATHERED:

We launched a member survey in mid-November 2018. The member survey is now closed. Thank you to all who completed the survey. In addition, in person focus groups were held at Region Conference and International Conference settings. Focus groups were also held using the Zoom meeting platform from February-May 2019. Our gratitude to everyone who participated and shared their candid opinion.

TOWN HALL TOPIC:

The Region Review was the topic for the Virtual Town Hall meeting held January 18, 2019. You may view a recording of the event here.
