Greetings MIACADA Members!
I am honored to serve as the President of MIACADA for the 2019-2020 term. I am excited and grateful to have this opportunity. The role of an academic advisor is constantly changing to meet the continually evolving needs of our students. As President, I will work diligently to promote MIACADA’s mission and navigate our organization in the direction that represents a methodology that all academic advisors can come together to share success stories and best practices.
I strongly believe that effective and competent advising is at the core of any student’s success during their higher academic experience. I pledge to continue growing personally and professionally through my experience as the President and, in turn, to share that knowledge to all of the MIACADA membership.
MIACADA is a place where we can network, foster a positive community experience, and share institutional and theoretical knowledge, best practices and techniques. It fosters positive methods on how to apply new and innovative practices for our students, in meaningful and lifelong impactful way. I would welcome and encourage everyone to join us at our State events which are available on the website.
The 2020 MIACADA Conference will be at Northwestern Michigan College in beautiful Traverse City Michigan on Friday, May 15, 2020. Mark your calendars now; I am excited to see all of you at the conference this year!
Have a great year!
