Summer!


Last week's meeting marked the last meeting we'll have for a while. Our next General UMAE meeting will be in the fall.  You can view the past year's meeting summaries and presentations HERE on the blog.

If you have any information that you'd like to share with the group, please let one of the executive members know.  We will continue to send out information over the next few months.

We hope the summer brings you some time to relax while you prepare for the upcoming school year.

Have a great summer!
UMAE Executive

Action items from the last UMAE General Meeting

 

·        NACADA Region 6 Conference (May 17-19) – early bird deadline is April 25, register online HERE.
 
o   There are volunteer opportunities available at the conference, it’s a great way to get more involved if you’re already attending!  Please contact Jean Lyon for more information (jean.lyon@umanitoba.ca).
 
·        A reminder from Brigitte about completing her survey:
 
We are asking for your help in determining how the Career Compass is being put into process across the university.  All comments and data will be kept confidential; we will not identify the role or unit from which the responses were made.  We will be using the responses in 2 ways:  (1) In a presentation at the NACADA Region 6 Conference in Winnipeg (May, 2017), and (2) To continue to develop the Compass.
 
 
·        At the next UMAE general meeting we will be having Janelle Ritchot and representatives from Universit√© de Saint-Boniface presenting.  If you have any questions regarding their programs, processes or the relationship between U of M and USB, please email them to me.  I will then forward those onto Janelle so they can be addressed at the June 6 meeting.
 
·        As always, if you have any thoughts or ideas for future meetings, please feel free to contact myself or any of the other exec members.
 
Sincerely,
Kristin
Chair, UMAE
