2022 Region 1 Steering Committee Election

Awards & Recognition Coordinator

Lisa Brucken

Since joining NACADA in 2016, I have been impressed by the integrity of the awards program and the importance of recognizing excellent advising professionals. I am excited about the possibility of becoming Region 1’s Awards and Recognition Chair. I have robust organizing strengths as well as strong written and diplomatic communication skills. My 6 years of advising and experience on my university’s advising council which recently awarded its first ever advising award help me recognize the skills and traits of an excellent advisor. The depth and breadth in experience and background of potential nominees allows me to utilize a holistic and inclusive consideration of all applications. This includes understanding the importance of fair assessment of an advisor’s experience, recommendations and their individual contributions to advising. I am grateful to be the recipient of a 2020 Region 1 Advising Award and would love to help choose and honor future winners.


William Poole

As a new professional in Academic Advising, I am looking for more ways to grow, both personally and professionally. I feel this is an amazing opportunity to meet others who have the same passion for the work we do each day. I hope to use this leadership opportunity to gain valuable skills to be able to move up into leadership roles within my institution. I have a passion for recognizing people for their hard work and have always loved giving back to my community, that is why I am interested in joining the steering committee as the Awards & Recognition Coordinator.
New York Liaison 

Lauren  Meyer

Professional development is at the core of academic advising and has provided me many valuable opportunities and relationships. I would like to serve my region to advance the operating principles that serve the members through professional development, networking, and leadership development.
Vermont Liaison 

Christin Martin

I have recently joined NACADA and am interested in becoming more involved. The Vermont Liaison position seemed like a great opportunity for me to become more involved and learn more about NACADA as I move forward in my career in higher education. I will bring strong written and oral communication skills to this role and an enthusiasm to learn and improve. I also bring experience within multiple Vermont colleges and hope to represent the various demographics of Vermont’s smaller and larger schools.
Rhode Island Liaison

Matthew Moquin

I nominate myself for the position of Rhode Island Liaison after fulfilling a 3 year term as conference chair for NACADA-RI. During this time I have helped plan and execute 3 different drive-in conferences, with two of those being virtual. From serving in the position of conference chair for NACADA-RI, I have been privileged to get to know the network of advisors within Rhode Island and have come to see them as a second family. While being part of these past 3 successful conferences, I have also enjoyed being able to help strengthen the NACADA community in Rhode Island. In the position of Liaison, I would continue my commitment to upholding the values of NACADA while also aiming to grow and strengthen the NACADA-RI community and Region 1 as a whole.
