As my time as president comes to an end, I thought it was time to (finally) update my welcome message. (For updates on all of the great work that WAEOPP has done this year, you can view the most recent committee reports here: http://waeopp.org/executive_board/reports)
Before I hand over the reins to President-Elect Moïse in November, I wanted to say thank you to all of WAEOPP for a wonderful year. I was apprehensive about being your president, but all of you supported me and the work of our association in wonderful ways. I’m so thankful for the hard work that was put into this year’s Policy Seminar, Spring Conference, scholarships, constitutional changes, budgeting and finance issues, and the elections process. All have come with their own challenges, and everyone has risen up to meet those challenges.
I will continue to stay involved in EOA as a member of a couple of committees, and I will of course continue to serve on the WAEOPP board as immediate Past-President. You’ll still see me around, and I hope to see even more WAEOPPians taking advantage of all that we have to offer. On that note...
I want to encourage everyone to become a member of the Educational Opportunity Association (EOA), our parent organization. Because I became a member early on in my time in college access programs in Wisconsin, I was able to have some of the most fulfilling experiences of my life. I dove in head first, but there are many ways you can be involved! Serving on a committee is a great way to get your feet wet, and we are always eager to welcome new faces to WAEOPP. You can find a list of committees and their descriptions here: http://waeopp.org/executive_board/committees
I look forward to seeing many of you at the EOA conference in Grand Rapids, and hopefully even more of you in Rochester for the Tri-State Conference. Thanks again!
