2020 Region 9 Conference
The 2020 NACADA Region 9 Conference has been cancelled.
Because of increased travel restrictions and the March 11 declaration of a COVID-19 pandemic by the World Health Organization and the recommendations for the Center for Disease Control to limit meetings, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Region 9 Conference in Palm Springs, California.
We encourage you to contact the hotel immediately to cancel your hotel reservation. For hotel information, visit nacada.ksu.edu/Community/Regions/Region-9/Hotel-Information.aspx. You will also want to contact your airline carrier if you booked air travel.

We understand that you will have questions. Please direct them to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 785-532-5717. Our volunteer conference chairs and region chairs will direct you to the Executive Office.
Tara Brown | Assistant Director of the Office of Undergraduate Student Academic Affairs for the Bourns College of Engineering, University of California - Riverside
With nearly two decades of service as a student affairs professional, Tara Brown is committed to the day when students no longer need student affairs staff. In the meantime, she is happy to support, advocate, and whip students into the best academic, personal, and professional shape possible.
A master’s in counseling in one hand and the wisdom of the ages in the other, Brown is, as one student notes, “the firm rock of unmoving sarcasm and sass in the storm that is college life.” In her current Earthly form, she is the Assistant Director of the Office of Undergraduate Student Academic Affairs for the Bourns College of Engineering on the University of California, Riverside campus. Students and staff lovingly refer to her as “The Oracle,” a character from the Matrix movie trilogies due to her uncanny ability to know what students will do before they know they will do it. From quick questions to life pondering sessions, a moment with Brown might start with laughter and/or tears, but will always end with introspection and a plan of action.
