Message from the President
Dear EACE Members:
The 2014-2015 EACE year is upon us, and I am honored to have the opportunity to serve as your President! I am thrilled about being able to give back to the association as EACE has already given me so much. For me, this year will come full circle, as my very first involvement with EACE was at the 2004 conference held in Pittsburgh, where we will meet again June 17-19, 2015.
As an association, we are in a great place with a growing membership, stable financial position, and an extremely strong group of leaders that are eager to contribute and grow with EACE. As with any organization, we want to continue to move forward and this year will mark implementation of the first year of our three year strategic plan. If you have not done so already, I encourage you to take a look at the Strategic Plan and ask yourself where you can help to move EACE forward. All you need to do to get involved is let myself or someone in the association know you are interested, it is never too early or too late.
As always, the year will be filled with many of the signature programs that EACE has become known for. This summer we will offer 24 Professional Exchange visits throughout the region. The winter will be highlighted with Road Trips to the Real World for students, and Winter Splash for professionals. Throughout the year we will have Twitter Chats, Workshops & Webinars and next summer we will have the opportunity to come together in Pittsburgh for the 2015 Annual Conference. The best way to keep up to date on everything that is going on with EACE is to connect with us on social media and visit the EACE Blog.
I want to thank you for being a member of EACE. I hope that you take full advantage of all that we can offer. Let’s make 2014-2015 the best year yet.
The EACE Professional Exchange Committee sponsors opportunities for groups of EACE college members to visit companies, nonprofit organizations and government agencies. This is a great way for you to strengthen or build relationships with various employers. During a visit you’ll receive information on the employer and its recruiting process through presentations, panels, tours and receptions.
Please remember that this program is only open to college professional members. Any of your colleagues who would like to attend will need to become an EACE member (group or individual).
