Expanded Membership Fields (Strategic Goal #1)
TACUSPA recently expanded the data fields required to renew membership. Historically, TACUSPA has access to member's name, title, institution, email, and number. Through this recent expansion, TACUSPA will now have more accurate information about the membership, including information such as first-generation status, to support the Board's efforts at making informed decisions regarding the programs, services, and resources offered to support our members. A membership profile will be published annually by the Director of Membership.
TACUSPA Resume Exchange (Strategic Goal #2)
TACUSPA is excited to host a winter break resume exchange! Members are invited to submit their resumes for review by another TACUSPA member. All submitters must agree to serve as a reviewer.
TACUSPA Café (Strategic Goal #3)
TACUSPA Cafés are designed to provide members an opportunity gather virtually to discuss relevant issues impacting campuses and the communities they serve. During these events members are split into smaller breakout sessions to engage in informal discussions. Once complete, all groups reconvene and summarize their discussions with the larger group. These collaborative events create opportunities for networking and promote of knowledge exchange among the membership.
