Leadership Awaits
NODA invites you to become an active participant in our future by getting involved in one of our many leadership roles. As a leader in NODA, we collectively challenge our thinking and approach to the complex issues of orientation, transition, and retention in the changing face of our new college students. Leadership in our organization provides many benefits:

  • Enhance your professional development
  • Network with leaders in the field of orientation, transition, and retention
  • Form life-long friendships
  • Make a difference

It is an honor and a privilege to be a NODA leader. NODA leaders are the ambassadors of a select membership and as such, will adhere to standards set forth by the Association.

Make a difference
Many opportunities exist. While each may require different levels of commitment of time and energy, each is vital to the operations and resources that NODA is able to provide our members. Candidates for most positions should be members of NODA who are currently involved in orientation, transition, and retention.
