March madness has hit the ground running as our stellar regions hosted seven regional conferences this month. I am so appreciative of everyone that attended a conference and for all of the awesome volunteers that make these events happen. We could not do this without you and thank you for your service to your association. Region I will finish us off hosting their conference April 26-27.

The NODA Board of Directors will be heading to the University of Tampa the first week of April for the Spring Board meeting. The Board will be having several strategic discussions related to work of the committees and future educational programming offerings. Highlights will be shared in the April NODA Review.

I am thrilled to share that we are expanding the NODA External Review Program by offering retention consultants. Dr. Jared Tippets and Dr. Eric Kirby, Southern Utah University are well known experts in the field and are now available to NODA members to conduct your external review programs related to retention. We, of course, still offer our orientation and transition reviews with our current program. As you prepare for your programming, contact me for more information.

Also available to you is assessment opportunities through SkyfactorOur partnership provides you an opportunity to assess your orientation leaders, family orientation or student orientation.  As a partner, NODA shares in the revenue, which is of great benefit to the Association. Skyfactor is hosting a free webinar on March 27, "Benchmarking and Assessment Best Practices for Your Orientation Program,"  presented by Jamie Mantooth, Executive Director of Enrollment Services & Student Engagement, University of Tennessee, Martin.

We have several additional webinars coming up with our partner Innovative Educators. NODA members receive a $50 discount using code NODA50. Don’t miss out on these great learning opportunities.

As you think about buying supplies for your office and orientation programs consider using Amazon Smile. Amazon will donate funds directly to NODA with the purchases you make.

Until next time….
