Membership Committee News
This year’s Joint Meeting
Showcase (formerly Carnival) will be on Monday, April 2 at 6:30. The Showcase
theme is “Beach Party” and your membership committee has been working very hard
to plan one of our fantastic tables with games and give-aways to promote CCAPS!
We would like to ask that as many of you as possible wear Hawaiian shirts to the
Showcase as our table theme is a Luau!
We are also asking all new,
current and past directorate members to approach their institutions to
participate in our give-away drive for Showcase Prizes. Please solicit
donations from your institutions and/ or bring give-aways from your counseling
centers. In order to be more conservationist in nature, we are doing a raffle
with larger giveaways (baskets filled with our donations) instead of lots of
small prizes. You can bring item to the Directorate meeting on Saturday, 3/31
or the Open meeting on Sunday, April 1.
The Networking Luncheon is
a great way to meet and greet each other and make great connections with
counseling center professionals. We are doing our famous Networking Luncheon a
little differently this year at the Joint Meeting. The luncheon will take place
on Sunday, April 1 immediately following the Business meeting at 12:00. This
time however, we will be staying in the same meeting room – Marriott Puerto Rico
and will be having food brought in – pizza, sandwiches and salads. There will
be a single price each person will pay for the lunch and it will be very
reasonable! Please plan to attend!
Each One Bring One
Don’t forget about the EACH
ONE BRING ONE campaign. Basically, you bring as many colleagues as
you can to the Joint Meeting!
Even bringing one other
person makes a HUGE difference in raising awareness of CCAPS and the important
and noteworthy work we do. Imagine if each of our over 300 CCAPS members
attended the Joint Meeting and brought one other person! Over 600 college and
university Counseling Center professionals would be in one place – LOOK OUT!
AND, the person bringing
the most colleagues to the convention will win a FANTASTIC PRIZE at our famous
and fun Networking Luncheon on Sunday, April 1, 2007.
The Membership committee is currently launching the new and FANTASTIC CCAPS
Mentoring Program! The goal of the CCAPS mentoring program is to match seasoned
professionals in college and university counseling centers with graduate
students and new professionals making their way in the field of higher education
The aim is to provide ongoing service to ACPA/CCAPS members by assisting
graduate students and new professionals in their growth and development, and
offering a way for veterans to provide service to their profession.
Thanks to the help of the Webpage committee, you will be able to sign up as a
mentor or mentee via the CCAPS website. Your information will be directly
submitted to the Membership committee who will then match mentors to mentees and
facilitate the beginning of the mentoring relationship! Please check out the
mentoring information on the CCAPS webpage and consider submitting an
application! We need your help to get this great new program rolling!
