Leadership & Membership Engagement

Current Challenges:      

From assessment data and focus group discussions the Strategic Planning Task Force has determined that:

  • Although WACUHO does an excellent job engaging new professionals and residential life staff, other members are not as engaged as we desire.
    • Administrative/Assignments Professionals
    • Chief Housing Officers
    • Dining Services Professionals
    • Facilities Professionals
    • Human Resources Professionals
    • Mid-Level Managers
    • Professionals New to the WACUHO Region
    • Summer Conferences Professionals
    • Business and Finance Professionals
  • There are limited opportunities to participate in WACUHO beyond the Annual Conference and Exposition.
  • Volunteers sometimes struggle with follow through.
  • Current programming efforts (Western Training Institute, Pacific Management Institute, etc.) may not be relevant and/or effective.

Desired Outcome:     

Connection, engagement, involvement and passion from a broad spectrum of members throughout the year

Key Indicators:         

  • Engagement of corporate partners
  • Engagement of membership beyond the new professional realm
  • Engagement of membership outside the residential life function area
  • Number of institutions registered as members
  • Opportunities for engagement beyond the Annual Conference and Exposition
