Month Region 7 Round-Up Additional materials
August  Steering Committee 101
Join in a discussion with Kristal Soderstrom Junkens, Region 7 Chair, and others from the Region 7 Steering Committee to learn more about our journeys in NACADA, what we are working on for our members, and how you can get more involved.
September  Self-care September
Join Olivia Miller, incoming Chair of the Well-Being & Advisor Retention AC, for a conversation on how to take care of yourself this academic year with self-care practices, setting boundaries and expectations, as well as creating a community of support and remembering your "why."
October Developing an Idea
Do you have an idea? Do you think others would like it? How do you take an idea and make it into a presentation or poster or article? Mary Francis will lead this Round-Up to talk about her experience with cultivating an idea into a presentation. Her co-presenter, Kendall Treece, will help describe the seed that began a collaborative effort to build a presentation. We will discuss what is a good idea (HINT: anything!), finding research to support your idea, using others to develop and expand your idea.
November Writing a Proposal
Concurrent sessions and Poster presentation proposals are due Tuesday, November 15. This discussion with other members will help you prepare the best proposal you can. We will share insights and tips to writing a proposal. Maybe some pitfalls that we had. All to support you getting your idea to a submitted proposal!
End of Semester Check Up (no recording)
Join Bethany and Jenna from Missouri to chat about how your recap of the fall semester. Did you notice any new trends? What challenges or new practices did you find? We will compare our discussion to the 2023 EDUCAUSE Strategic Trends Glossary considering our different institutional types. Additionally, we will outline how we can use professional development, like NACADA, to help us with these trends and practices in the new year.
