President's Update

 

Hello NEACUHO,

 

I am excited to email you as the President of NEACUHO and share with you some updates on behalf of the organization!!

 

*     Annual Conference Update:  As you may already be aware, at the business meeting held at Westfield State University, host of our last annual conference this past June, it was announced that we were embarking on a three year trial of having out annual conference at a hotel/conference site in the fall instead of June on a college campus.  A great amount of time and effort had been spent collecting data that was used in making that move.  While there are still a lot of unanswered questions, we are moving forward.  After our board meeting in October, we expect to announce the final site but what we do know is that we are planning for October 2017 in Portland, Maine!!!!  Once that piece is in place and confirmed, there will be a lot more information coming out such as applications for the planning committee and details regarding changes ahead. 

*     Fall Drive-in:  In trying to find a host site for the fall drive-in, dates and scheduling didn’t line up in terms of space availability etc. for the campuses that did express interest in possibly hosting.  This led us to have to cancel having a fall drive-in and move to trying to host a drive-in in March instead so please be on the lookout for more information about that.  If you think you might be able to host us or want to talk more about that possibility, please contact Michelle Carvajal atMichelle.Carvajal@purchase.edu. We would love to visit your campus!

*     Membership & List-serv:  Annual membership is now due.  If your institution is not a member, this is the last email that you will receive directly.  Membership information is available on our website at www.neacuho.org. Also, we are going to be purging our list-serv on October 1 so you will have to update your membership in order to be part of it.

*     Committees:  Committee sign-ups are still available on our website.  Our committees are working hard to bring you events and newsletters but our success depends on your involvement.  Please consider joining today!

*     RD2B:  Our first RD2B event is being held at Sacred Heart University on Saturday, October 15.  Sign up your undergraduate students today!  Registration is available on our website!

*     Upcoming NEACUHO Events:  We are having our first ever LIVE TWITTER CHAT:

o   The Risk Management & Legal Issues (RMLI) Committee will host a NEACUHO Twitter Chat on Wednesday, September 28th from 2-3 PM to discuss how offices are planning for the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) changes effective December 1st, and its impact on Residence Life professionals in the field. The questions will be sent out from the NEACUHO twitter account (https://twitter.com/neacuho) and can be followed with using #NEACUHO

o   In preparation for the conversation, the RMLI committee recommends reviewing the ACUHO-I & NASPA document released last week, "The FLSA Final Overtime Rule: A Resource Guide for Student Affairs Professionals" located online at: http://www.acuho-i.org/Portals/0/img/edevt/Policy_and_Practice_No_1_FLSA_DOWNLOAD2.pdf

o   Other upcoming events can be found on our website in the calendar section.

 

If you have any questions for me or about the organization or getting involved, don’t hesitate to contact me or any member of the executive board.  We would love to have you involved!!!  I hope to see YOU at an upcoming NEACUHO event!!

 

Sincerely,

Shelly Keniston

NEACUHO President
