District III Conference
Exciting news about our upcoming District Conference
Professional development and networking are an important part of our CASE membership experience. With the uncertainty around COVID-19 and tighter budgets, CASE and volunteer leaders from each of the eight US/Canada Districts are taking advantage of the opportunity to work together to develop a single comprehensive online District conference program, rather than the traditional eight separate conferences. This new format will maximize resources, provide the tools and information needed to advance education at your institution or school, and allow you a chance to broaden your CASE network in a unique way. It is a very exciting project!
The All Districts Conference will be presented February 16–18, 2021. It will bring together eight districts for a robust learning agenda, opportunities for personal and group interaction, and events that engage our professional partners. There are four leaders from CASE District III serving on the executive committee for the conference alongside other volunteers who originally stepped up to serve as conference chairs in their districts:
- Colleen Bourdeau, director, communications and marketing, Harbert College of Business at Auburn University; conference marketing and communications,
- Joycelyn Mahone, senior university development officer at Virginia Commonwealth University; opportunity and inclusion,
- Latasia Priest, associate director of development at North Carolina State University; sponsor and exhibitor relations, and
- Ashley Privott, director, advancement community learning at the University of Virginia; awards program.
On behalf of CASE, let me share how truly grateful we are for the ingenuity, flexibility, and determination of our volunteers. Their roles have changed considerably since they committed to being part of the conference planning team, and all of us are looking forward to what they will create together.
