All Regional Knowledge Community representatives are appointed by our Regional Director, and serve for a term through March 2013. These volunteer leaders connect the work of the region and the work of the national Knowledge Communities by communicating regularly, creating opportunities to promote relevant scholarship to the region, and working with the leadership team in Region 2 to push the agenda of NASPA forward.
Interested? Submit a short personal statement detailing your interest and past involvement with NASPA or other relevant organizations along with a resume to Will Simpkins (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Michele Grab (email@example.com), Region 2 Knowledge Community Co-Coordinators by Friday, April 5, 2013.
Knowledge Communities are the “Gateway to the Profession and Connection to the Association.” Each Knowledge Community promotes an area of scholarship and practice that adds diversity, depth, and dialogue to the profession and the association. Your involvement in a Knowledge Community could be at the “spectator” level – joining the member list and enjoying the scholarship and information shared by the Knowledge Community’s leaders – or at the “player” level – getting involved through concrete leadership positions or volunteering at conferences and meet-ups.
To join a Knowledge Community – or check to see which you’ve already joined! – simply log-in to the NASPA website, then click “Update Profile” in the top right corner. Next, click the “Edit Information” link and scroll to the end of the page to click which Knowledge Communities you wish you join. There is no limit – join as many as you like!
To support NASPA’s goals and guiding principles, each Knowledge Community has a leadership team that includes national chairs, regional representatives from each of NASPA’s seven regions, and assorted other members to coordinate things like publications, awards, conferences, and more! For more information about the activities of a specific Knowledge Community, check out their website on the NASPA page and contact the national chair listed on the leadership roster for that group.
