ACPA has nourished my professional identity for over 20 years. I developed a deep appreciation and affinity for ACPA early in my career as a graduate student and continue to feel a strong “sense of place” within the organization through my leadership opportunities with the SSAO Advisory Board, the Standing Committee for Disability, the Commission for Administrative Leadership, and the Convention Planning team. The Association’s core values of social justice, inclusion, and scholarship are aligned with my professional commitments to my institution and community. The authentic relationships I’ve developed with my ACPA colleagues are grounded by collegiality, scholarship, and best practices. ACPA’s symposiums and conventions have enhanced my professional competencies, informed my understanding of theory to practice, and inspired my passion for serving others.
