It’s time to bring our chapter to a close.
The Bryan/College Station Chapter has gone through many changes since our start in
1955. Through those 60 years, we’ve had amazing leaders and engaged members. Give
yourself a high five for your efforts and participation, especially during the times of
uncertainty and change. Even if you do not agree with the direction the home
organization is taking, let’s not forget the friends and resources we have made through
IAAP and our own chapter. I encourage you to not lose those connections.
In order to keep communication among our cadre of administrative professionals and networks, we have changed the name of our Facebook page to Brazos Valley Assistants. The page will be used to share tips and tricks, events, and training opportunities. This is an interactive group where anyone can, and is encouraged to, post items. Let us know if you are going to a conference, heard about a webinar, or learned some tip that could help many others! If you aren’t already a group member, do a search for “Brazos Valley Assistants” and click the “Join” button. Be sure to turn notifications on for “All Posts”, once you are accepted to the group. If you invite someone, be sure to accept them as a member and welcome them to the group.
If you have questions about what is happening in headquarters or in our Texas-Louisiana Division, please remember the Division stays open until June 30th. If you are a current IAAP member, you can still log into http://www.iaap-hq.org/home to check e-groups and get updates in the organization. There is a link on the homepage about the IAAP Revitalization: https://magic.piktochart.com/output/5305163-iaap-revitalization. Applications for LANs (Local Area Networks) are due in May, so we may receive notice about a LAN close to us by summertime. If you find information that you think will be useful to the group, please share it on the Brazos Valley Assistants Facebook page!
Thanks to all of you for making this year, and all past years, memorable. Best wishes to you in the next steps of your careers and lives!
