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
