This year’s District 1 conference was held Nov. 5-7 in beautiful Annapolis, Maryland. Over 100 attendees enjoyed informative programming, great networking opportunities, and quaint accommodations at the Historic Inns of Annapolis.


Changing Currents

On Oct. 1, I began my travels to each of NCMPR’s district conferences in my role as president. What better way to start than to visit my home District 3, which partnered with District 5 in a joint conference, “Changing Currents.”


Take a Chance on YOU

I’ve been working in marketing for more than 27 years, and I’m still learning new things. Heck, I still enjoy taking on new challenges, even when I’m in unfamiliar territory.

NCMPR often presents me with new challenges, allowing me the opportunity to grow in directions I never expected. I find myself taking on tasks I never thought I could, with constant encouragement from my peers.


Postcard from Ann Arbor, Michigan: Visiting the District 3 Conference

“M” is for Michigan! And when you visit the quintessential and charming college town of Ann Arbor, the big gold “M” of the University of Michigan stadium won’t let you forget it. The “M” is a symbol of pride seen everywhere, but as it turned out, “M” is also for “motivation,” “memories” and “making connections” thanks to a stellar conference program presented by talented district director Kayte Hamel and the District 3 team.


Postcard From Walla Walla, Washington: Visiting the District 7 Conference

There’s no place like home – or so Dorothy said. If you swap out the yellow bricks for red wine varietals, the sentiment works pretty well for my visit to Walla Walla, Washington, and the District 7 conference, my home district. We’re a smaller but special group that hails from the northwest corner of the U.S. and western Canada, where there are fewer community colleges but a mighty talent base of communicators.
