My inbox is flooding with notices to renew my professional memberships. Is yours? The conversation is classic: ACPA or NASPA? Or just your functional area professional organization? For myself, my undergraduate was more ACPA-focused, grad school more NASPA-strong, and NACADA throughout graduate school and now in my professional career. I have budgeting professional development into my plan and will continue to renew all three because there are pieces I love about each and that enhance my career each and every day. Who do you call home?
