Welcome to the NACUFS 2021 Regional Conference! There is no question that COVID-19 has shifted the dynamic to how we lead, learn, and grow. We are tremendously excited to showcase how we in the Pacific Northwest have been empowered to make and adapt to change. The region is surrounded by divine mountain ranges, captivated by the brilliant ice glaciers that encompass Mt. Rainer. When paired with the vibrant and diverse marine life that thrives beneath the waters of Puget Sound; it creates a unique experience that will be relished for a lifetime.
We are extremely proud of our culture and constantly strive to express it through our culinary talents. This conference will take place in the shadows of the more well-known Seattle as the vibrant city of Bellevue welcome’s you! Commonly referred to as the heartbeat of the technology Universe and the gateway to the World as an international HUB for the airline industry. In a story that began as a single lake house on the shores of Lake Washington, Bellevue is now home to Microsoft, T-Mobile, Samsung, Expedia, HTC and so many important other companies. We have become a complex and intermingled network of peoples from across the globe.
We invite you to join us on an epic adventure as we share our experiences and look to grow with you as we break bread and exchange ideas that will shape the student experiences of tomorrow.
We look forward to seeing you.
DAN FAIRES, Conference Chair
