Message from the Chair

Hello, COWY colleagues!


For those who were able to attend the recent COWY ACADA Drive-In Conference, this email is something you may have been anticipating. For those who could not be in attendance, this is an update on an exciting opportunity to get involved!


Over the course of the next month, COWY ACADA will be electing a new Executive Committee for the 2018-2020 term. We understand that time is a major hindrance for many when it comes to getting involved in professional associations.  However, COWY ACADA is the perfect opportunity for you to get experience with minimal time commitment (1-5 hours a month) in areas your current position may lack.


An officer role on the COWY ACADA Executive Committee is a fantastic opportunity if you enjoy partnering with your colleagues across the two-state area in discussions of how best to communicate, partner, and support each other in our work with students. Position duties, responsibilities, terms, and time commitments can be reviewed on the COWY ACADA website.


To apply as a candidate for the COWY ACADA Executive Committee, or to nominate a candidate, please submit information via ourCandidacy/Nomination form.  A link to the form can also be found on the COWY ACADA website


Nominations will be accepted through Friday, April 13th, at which time candidate information will be placed on the COWY ACADA website and shared via the COWY ACADA listserv and COWY ACADA Facebook page. Candidate information will remain on the website through the voting period, which opens April 16th and closes April 27th. Election results will be announced in early May, and the new COWY ACADA Executive Committee will be installed officially at the *2018 NACADA Region 10 Conference in Midway, Utah, May 21st-23rd.


*While recommended, it is not a requirement of newly elected COWY ACADA Executive Committee members to attend the 2018 NACADA Region 10 Conference in Midway, Utah.
