NODA Association July Update
It’s the end of July and we are heading into August very soon. That means, some of you have been able to take a much needed break and for others it’s just starting or moving on to extended orientation and other programming. Where ever you are with your OTR programs know that you are doing a great job and remember to take one day at a time. You got this!!!
As OTR near the end of programming for the year, many NODA members pause and reflect on possible changes for the next year. This is the time that we often see more activity in NODA Connect seeking to answer questions or new resources. There are several resources already online in NODA Connect: Assessment and Learning Outcomes; OTR Position Descriptions; and Orientation Leader Training are just a few examples of what you can find in the NODA Connect Resource Library. Follow these directions to review resources and network with your NODA Community.
You may also find that you are in need of a review of your OTR programs. You may need either all or a few components that need some changes. NODA has several excellent external review consultants with years of OTR experience that would be happy to connect with you. Take a look at the NODA External Review program and connect with me or Chad to find out more.
Don’t forget that the Early Bird Rate for the NODA 2019 Annual Conference ends on August 26. Register today to get the lower rate and don’t forget to make your hotel reservation at the Hilton America’s- Houston.
Until next time….
Joyce Holl, NODA Executive Director
