Conference Afterglow

Posted By Kenny Mauk, Thursday, March 5, 2015

The SWACUHO Annual Conference is always exciting and this year was no exception.  The ice, sleet, snow, wind, and cold was kept at bay by the warmth of familiarity our members share.


From the newcomer's meeting to the closing banquet it was truly great to see colleagues both new and old.  While our conference may be over, our work as an organization is just beginning.  Very soon the executive committee will have our first conference call and individual phone calls will begin with the committee chairs.  


Our work includes evaluating scholarship and awards provided by SWACUHO.  In the coming months an ad hoc committee will address each scholarship and each award provided to determine how we can better serve our members.  Better serving our membership through scholarship means that we must be clear in process and evaluation of award recipients.  Our many awards and award timelines can be confusing - as an executive board we have committed to evaluating the process and to provide clarity not only for the Awards and Recognition Committee but for our membership at large.  


Another task will continue the good work begun by Diane Brittingham.  That work is context mapping and strategic direction.  Joellen Newman, our immediate past president, has agreed to serve as chair of an ad hoc committee formed to hold the executive board accountable to implementation of aspects of the context map laid out in October 2014.


Finally we are challenged to utilize our fantastic website and all of it's capabilities.  One way to do this is to actively engage in forums, blogs, and committee work via the website.  If you are reading this little blog post then congrats - you have contributed to your professional organization!  


These are but a few of our tasks, in the coming weeks I will provide updates on the progress of these tasks along with other tasks as they arise.  I welcome your feedback and your active participation.
