I’ve had the good fortune of being part of NAASS for many years. Like many of you I was brand new to summer administration, so I came to NAASS to learn from others and absorb their wisdom and experience. NAASS never failed to deliver these important benefits to me. The bonus—it came with friendships of people I admire and look forward to seeing every year at our conferences.
I’m proud to say that NAASS has grown in the last two years with the merger of two independent affiliates, NCCSS, the North Central Conference on Summer Sessions, and WASSA, the Western Association of Summer Session Administrators. To the new members from these regions—welcome! Membership provides you immediate access to over 450 colleagues across North America. Together we are now ready to move forward as a powerful, united organization.
Whether you are a long-time member or new to NAASS, I invite you to take advantage of all that NAASS has to offer. There is no substitute for the power of conversations with other administrators who understand the unique issues related to summer and special sessions.
