2022 Region 10 Steering Committee Election

Communications Coordinator

Paloma Boykin

As the Communications Coordinator for NACADA Region 10, I would like to see our social media presence grow. A few ideas that I have would be to update our social media presence: have monthly Instagram takeovers from our board and then open it up to region 10 members. We need to let people know that we’re on social media but we need to let people know who we are and the amazing work that we’re doing at our schools within the region. Another idea that I have to highlight our TenTalks who are our speakers, what is their session going to be about. These are some of the few ideas that I have and I look forward to serving as your Communications Coordinator!

Jordan Truex

Communication is a pivotal part of how advisors can come together to become a community. As the Communications Chair, I desire to bridge the gap between NACADA and each institution within Region 10 so that every advisor is informed about the events, activities, and opportunities throughout our region. I have a vast educational and professional background creating and implementing designs and marketing materials through social media, email, and print campaigns. I strongly desire to serve others and to help use my talents and skills to better the processes and systems that I am involved in. I have had the opportunity to serve as the Communications Chair since August 2021 and would like to continue to implement the ideas that I have had going forward in serving a full term in the position, including creating a region newsletter, expanding timely communication to institutions, and increasing participation in social media platforms.
Two-Year Utah Liaison

Deborah Decker​

As an academic advisor in the state of Utah for 10 years, I would love to serve my fellow advisors in this position. Like many of us, advising was not my first career plan but since finding advising I am totally committed to my chosen profession and NACADA our professional organization. I have presented at a few conferences and have attended several more and am excited about this opportunity to deepen my service with NACADA and my region.
