Welcome to NCURA Region IV!
NCURA is a member-driven professional association, so everything we do seeks to further your growth and development as a research administrator and as a leader in higher education. We have a number of initiatives slated for 2012, and I personally invite you to be involved and lend your voice, your experience, and your expertise.
Our major goal this year is to further advance professional development services for our members. For 2012, we want to lay the groundwork for a mentoring program that will pair experienced administrators with new-comers to the field. Region IV is also participating in a host of national initiatives, such as the NCURA Collaborate Program, and we encourage you to get involved and start making connections with your colleagues across the country.
As always, there is important work to be done on our various standing committees such as the Program Committee, the Membership Committee, Communications, Nominations, and others. One of the best ways to get to know NCURA and your fellow members is to dive right in and get involved in committee activities. You’ll be glad you did!
Please explore this site and see what we are all about. If you are considering becoming a member, this site provides you with information about our members, curriculum, and our large portfolio of professional development opportunities. After visiting us on line, please call me (815-836-5129) so that we can talk in person about what NCURA Region IV can do for you and your institution.
If you are already a member, welcome back to our web site! If you haven’t visited recently, you’ve probably noticed some significant changes in the design and content of our web site, and that’s all thanks to the work of several talented volunteers.
Region IV has many exciting activities for 2013 including:
- AM55 (the NCURA National Meeting) August 4–7 in Washington DC
- Regional awards
- Regional nominations
- 2013 Spring Meeting in Milwaukee, WI
If you have ideas for expanding our regional programming or activities, please contact me directly at 815.836.5129.
