Coach, Regional Conference Planner Cohort

August 16, 2017 Download pdf


The coach of the regional conference planner cohort supports the on-going professional development of NAFSA’s 11 regional conference planners. Over a 24-month period, the coach will work with two successive cohorts to foster collegiality and to support their task of planning a regional, bi- or tri-regional conference. As a former regional conference planner, the coach will provide perspectives on managing the process of planning a regional conference, promote the sharing of best practices between regions, and empower conference planners to lead the planning of a conference while retaining the autonomy and culture of their regions. The coach is appointed by the vice president for Professional Development and Engagement (VP PDE) in consultation with the Regional Affairs Committee (RAC) chair designate.
