Preparing for #ACUI12

I am thrilled to be heading to Boston for the Association of College Unions International (ACUI) Annual Conference next week.  In preparation for the conference, I have the following goals:

  • RELATE: I am actively involved in Region 1 and am very excited to reconnect with old friends.  However, I want to branch out and meet new folks from outside of the Region.  I am also looking forward to meeting, in real life (IRL), many colleagues I have come to know and learn from via Twitter.
  • REFLECT: I was honored to be asked to blog from the conference!  I will be blogging right here and will be sharing what I am learning, who I am meeting as well as random thoughts and photos.  This will be a great way for me to immediately reflect on my experience.  I will also be active on Twitter @timstjohn using the #ACUI12 hashtag.
  • REACT: As I take full advantage of all the knowledge being shared at the Conference, I will create an action plan for my department upon returning to campus.  I will also share relevant knowledge with colleagues outside of my department.

What are you looking forward to most from your ACUI (or other) Conference experience?
