I feel very fortunate to be able to work with such a talented board of student affairs and higher education professionals with many years of expertise and leadership, and I encourage all CPAC members to feel free to reach out to either myself and anyone elese on the executive board if you have any further questions, concerns, or feedback.

SECRETARY/TREASURER

CPAC Involvement: I have been involved with CPAC for three and half years and this is my second year serving on the board.  As Treasurer, I manage the budget and fiscal affairs for the board, working as a liaison with ACPA to get generated revenue from membership and event registrations transferred to the CPAC checking account so the association can pay bills related to our professional development events, conferences, and administrative expenses.  As Secretary, I keep the minutes for CPAC Board meetings and an action items list to assist the board in staying focused on our tasks associated with providing quality professional development events and services to our members.  This year, I hope to assist CPAC in improving our working relationship with ACPA as an internally affiliated state chapter so that we can more accurately and transparently track revenue from registration, conference, and professional development events.  I am also supporting the board as we use an 18-month budget to get CPAC synchronized with ACPA’s calendar year budgeting system beginning in 2018.  As an association, we are also experimenting this year with new events and transitioning when we hold certain events such as the annual conference.
