Greetings NACUFS Midwest Region!
The Groundhog saw his shadow – six more weeks of winter! Speaking of six weeks from Groundhogs Day… Our 2017 Midwest Regional Conference, “The Winning Ticket.” is at the University of Iowa on March 19-21, 2017. Jill Irvin and the entire University of Iowa committee are assembling a winning conference. I hope to see many of you in Iowa City!
I have been fortunate to serve as your regional director this year. Looking to the future, the Midwest Director-Elect position will be the only regionally elected position with the new NACUFS governance structure; so, please have your institutions voting delegate attend the business meeting at the Regional Conference in Iowa. If your voting delegate will not be in attendance, please contact me to certify an alternate voting delegate from your institution.
The regional council has been communicating regularly by phone each month. This past fall the council met at the University of Iowa, the focus was on implementing the programs and services approved by the Board of Trustees, completing the 2017 Midwest Region budget, the 2018 Midwest Regional Conference budget, and previewing the 2017 Regional Conference. A special thank you to the council for their work and commitment to our region!
A special welcome to three new Midwest Region Institutional members: Culver-Stockton College in Canton, MO; Dordt College in Sioux Center, IA; and Saint Joseph’s College in Rensselaer, IN.
If you have any questions, please reach out to your regional council or myself.
As the Groundhog saw his shadow, I hope to see you in Iowa City!
