Greetings WACUHO!



Greetings WACUHO

Today is March 11, and the WACE conference is four weeks from now....YEAH! This years WACE committees have done an incredible job organizing our conference, and this is already demonstrated by our registration numbers. As of this morning, we had 268 complete registrations! We have to do something we haven't had to do IN YEARS, and that is cap registration at 300. So....if you were planning to attend and haven't been able to register, please do so as soon as you can. We have a back up hotel to accommodate those needing to stay in town. Please go to the WACE web site for more info at wacuho.org/wace/

Look for a Pre-Conference WAVES at the end of this month, choc full of information for S.S. WACE, Moving Forward Together. Until then, have a great rest of the month.



Ramona Hernandez
WACUHO President

Attention - WACE conference registration will close at 300!


Please register ASAP if you plan to attend, and accept our apologies if we have to close registration.

WACUHO Housing Survey Deadline Extended

We invite Chief Housing Officers (or their designees) to complete the 2013-2014 WACUHO Housing Survey. This survey, conducted by the committee every two years, covers rates, services and revenue sources with regard to Student Housing programs in the region. We will share the results of the survey with the membership, and hope this will be a valuable tool for Student Housing departments in our region to utilize. The survey will take 20-30 minutes to complete. We are seeking responses by Thursday, March 20. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Legislative Affairs and Research Committee Chairs Kelly Cole or Nathan Moses.

Join WoW now!

Attention Women of WACUHO,

As you already heard, Women of WACUHO or WoW is here and now looking for committee members! This newly formed committee is looking for talented and passionate women who are looking to help create and participate in networking, leadership, mentorship, personal and professional development opportunities for the association.

It is our main goal to provide opportunities where new, mid-level and seasoned professionals can share ideas, spark conversations, offer support and guidance, as well as create a space where mentorship can thrive. It is our strong belief that empowerment and representation of women in various opportunities are essential for our profession to flourish.

We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to a roundtable hosted by WoW at WACE on Monday, April 7, from 10:10am-12:15pm. Topics included (but not limited to); professional advancement, balancing life and work, managing academic pursuits, and professional acumen as a woman. Look for us at WACE, we’ll have many other opportunities in which we can make you say WoW!

Sincerely,
Mayra Alcala, Piya Bose and Maggie Malagon

Creatively Collaborating in the Workplace

Are you wondering how to create a collaborative culture in your department? Follow these simple steps.

1) What are your department’s goals? Review your mission statement. Don’t have one? Creating a mission statement is a great way to collaborate with your colleagues. Knowing about your department’s goals and being passionate about them will create a stronger community.

2) Open communication and open mindedness helps you understand others values and creates a collaborative culture. If you come to your colleagues with problems, also come with solutions.

3) Being positive doesn’t cost anything. Coming to your next meeting with a smile and a willingness to listen and collaborate is priceless.

4) Encourage each other to share failures. Failures can bring a department closer together and evolve. In staff meetings, take a moment to assess your failures and learn from them, to ensure they are not repeated.

5) Don’t surround yourself with like-minded people. Invite others to your meetings who may have different perspectives. Your differences in opinions may lead to THE BEST IDEA EVER!!!

Come collaborate with the Support Services Committee at WACE 2014 on Tuesday April 4th 8:30 a.m. in the Pacifica room. See you there!

 
Sincerely,
Support Services Committee
