I've written extensively about #NASPACPA. Voting concludes this week. While we won't know right away whether or not consolidation has passed, one thing is certain. We will have an answer to one of the biggest questions for student affairs professionals: Are we going to consolidate ACPA and NASPA into a unified association?

Are you tired? Has the conversation surrounding the proposed consolidation between ACPA and NASPA (#NASPACPA) fatigued your otherwise resilient spirit? While I must admit that the journey to get to this point has been contentious, I am also filled with hope. Hope that change is coming...and that we have been building something worthwhile. Change is never easy. We all know this to be true and yet it almost always surprises us when we are "in" it.

As I write this post on a plane back to Oregon from Philadelphia I am struck by the immense amount of reflection and wisdom sharing that took place at the 2011 NASPA Annual Conference. There were an immeasurable amount of educational moments. Professional connections were made that will last well beyond the four or five days that many spent moving between the Philadelphia Convention Center and the Marriott Hotel.

The 2011 NASPA Annual Conference has been an amazing event. More than 5,000 student affairs practitioners came to Philadelphia to share information, make connections, and discuss the future direction of both the association and the profession. The exhibit hall was jam-packed with a variety of higher education vendors / service providers. Sessions, meetings, banquets, receptions, and all sorts of festivities have kept attendees active from early in the morning to late at night.
