Looking Forward to the Upcoming Conference and Future of SECSA

I hope this finds everyone well. As I look ahead toward the 2016 conference in Dallas in just a few weeks, I am already looking forward to the time available to spend with friends and colleagues and the opportunity to network with others and make new friends and colleagues. I am excited about the general session speakers, Career Academy offerings, and the wonderful presentations listed throughout the schedule. Again this year, I am especially looking forward to our SECSA Federation meeting so that we, the SECSA Board, may share all of the exciting items being planned to benefit the members.

I encourage all SECSA Federation members to please attend the meeting on Friday, July 22nd from 10:15-11:15am (currently scheduled in Room: Austin #4) as your Board has some great things to share and we look forward to chatting with everyone. This year, the Board is planning to host some interactive planning sessions to focus on two main areas of key interest (1) conference planning and (2) membership.

We are asking anyone interested in working with us as part of small committee/s to please step up to help. We would like to have some roundtable discussions during our time together in Dallas to focus on:

  • Conference planning (needs/wants) for future SECSA conferences
  • US membership (4-year and 2-year institutions)
  • International membership

Don’t forget to connect with the SECSA and its members on LinkedIn and Facebook.
LinkedIn group page: SECSA Federation and Facebook group page: SECSA Federation of ICHRIE (‘Ichrie’ on the FB site).

As always, I welcome any SECSA member to feel free to reach out to me ( or 980- 598-1536), so that we can chat about our future together.
