ACPA has been a great investment in my future and an outlet to stay connected to my colleagues. As a graduate assistant, I had an opportunity to attend an innovative session presented by the person who would become my supervisor. As a young professional, I had an opportunity to volunteer with the Commission for Career Services as way to meet other young professionals in my functional area, and I currently serve as a Directorate member for the Commission for Career Services, which allows me to help other young professionals connect with ACPA in the same way I did. Each Convention also allows me to meet the newest class of student affairs professionals from my graduate program at James Madison University, and the opportunities to reconnect with old friends and meet new friends are priceless. I love ACPA!
