I hope that you are doing well and are enjoying students being back on campus! Here in Texas, I am excited for so many reasons. Firstly, after enduring a grueling 49-day stretch of temperatures consistently reaching at least 100 degrees, we’ve finally experienced some relief with highs around 95 degrees for the past few days—hooray for cooler weather! I’m also excited that with students back on campus, we have opened applications for our Honor Society, Nu Lambda Mu, to celebrate the exceptional students that are dedicated to nonprofit and philanthropic education.

I hope you’ve all marked your calendars for our upcoming annual member meeting on November 15th, which will be held in Orlando, Florida, or accessible online via Zoom. We’re currently finalizing the agenda and eagerly anticipating engaging discussions, as well as the opportunity to hear about your achievements over the past year.

I also want to express my sincere gratitude to everyone who attended and contributed to our July Conference in Auburn, Alabama. I would especially like to thank our hosts at Auburn University for being excellent hosts. I had an incredible experience and enjoyed the thought-provoking and meaningful panels, discussions, and presentations that took place. It was nice to see the NACC network come back together in-person!

Wishing you all the best!
