{Best Practice} Bring Your Community To #NACCE2015!

Posted By Leah Deppert, Wednesday, June 17, 2015
Updated: Tuesday, July 14, 2015

As a community of practice, we love sharing best practices around NACCE. Last year, we learned a best practice from some of our conference attendees...bring your community with you to conference! 


We had many colleges that chose to bring 2+ folks to the conference and below is a short interview with NACCE member, Jeanne WesleyVice President of Workforce and Community Relations at Germanna Community College about how it was helpful to bring her tribe to the NACCE conference last year. 




We encourage you to invite someone new to join you at #NACCE2015.

Q: Jeanne, i
n your opinion, what were the added benefits of coming to the NACCE conference as a team opposed to by yourself?

A: Bringing colleagues to the NACCE conference provides a tremendous opportunity for team building. The sessions are informative and promote discussion of real-time issues faced by colleges serving the entrepreneur community. Networking with others at various stages of their progress helps to chart a successful local path. With a college team on site, there is instant discussion, planning, and creative problem solving that is far superior to any dreary planning retreat.    


Q: Why would you encourage others to also come as a team?


A: I would encourage other to come as team because of the fellowship, team building, and abundant tools that result in fired-up, ready to move forward staff. Staff members leave "entrepreneur ready"!


Q: Do you think you and your team member were able to enact your action plan on campus in a more effective and fruitful way since there were two of you? Why or why not?


A: By bringing another team member, the learning curve for developing and implementing innovative ideas was greatly reduced. 


A special thank you to Jeanne for this interview! We appreciate you!
