CASE ASAP District 5

 Hi there, District 5!

 It has been wonderful to get to know many of you over the past several months. Thank you for being so kind and welcoming - you have made this transition very smooth for me, and it has  truly been a pleasure. I am so excited to work with you all over the next two years!

 I would especially like to thank everyone who attended the National CASE Conference for Student Advancement this past August in Atlanta. Your  presentations were stellar, and your enthusiasm made the experience just that much more enjoyable. I loved seeing all of your photos on our brand new District 5 Facebook Group. A huge congratulations to Bri Coggins from the University of Cincinati for wining a CASE ASAP award for Outstanding Adviser. We are so proud of you!

Looking at the rest of the year, we have a couple of exciting events and opportunities to look forward to. First, the deadline to apply to host a District 5 State Day is Friday, October 7, 2016. Please reach out to me if you have any questions.

Additionally, CASE ASAP is thrilled to announce the implementation of the first District Cabinet system. The District Representatives will appoint their first cabinets this fall, with one student member per state within the districts. The deadline to apply for these positions is October 10, 2016, with the inaugural term beginning November 1. I am unbelievably excited about these positions and the leadership potential they hold for our district members.

I feel so blessed to be a part of District 5. There is a unique passion that you bring to the table, and I can't wait to see how we can tap into that as we continue to strengthen our student advancement organizations.

Until next time, District 5!
