LEADERSHIP DIRECTORY- REGION 9

The Pacific Region consists of academic advising professionals from California, Hawaii, and Nevada. In October 2009, inaugural operating procedures were voted on and approved by region members. The Region 9 Steering Committee is the leadership team for the community. The team consists of the current and past region chair, the present and past conference chairs, 2 liaisons per state, a membership and awards coordinator, a communications coordinator, and a budget coordinator. The collective work of Region 9 is to promote the values of NACADA and accomplish progress for the academic advising profession in ways that benefit the 3 states as well as the region's success as a whole community.
