Platform Statement

Last year I created a theme to guide the chapter year business. The theme I created as Chapter President was “Mentoring Our Future Leaders.” This is a huge governing influence for me personally and professionally. I want to see our up and coming future leaders mentored with the passion and influence that was given to me as I was growing in my career regardless if they are my children or yours. Working with my chapter we created a community service committee, a student liaison for our student sections, and engaged students hosting our Regional Student Leadership Conference.

It means the world to me to pursue the nomination for Regional II Vice President because I can bring our veteran leadership and our under-mentored future leaders together. Could you imagine the possibilities?

I understand the importance of mentoring future leaders at the beginning of their career or during the time they are volunteering on our local student section leadership. I would like to increase our Student Leadership Conferences to happen annually instead of every other year.

Our Region has a very unique demographic and we have so much to teach and share with other Regions. Just as we have so much to share, we have so much to learn and I want to understand other Regions, so we can ultimately become the Region that everyone wants to be like.

I would like to implement a networking and Region II gathering each year to see how the Chapters are doing and share best practices with each other outside of the annual PDC.

I am committed to leading Region II with the same enthusiasm and passion that I have had in my previous roles within ASSE. I appreciate your support and look forward to working with each of you in the near future.
