For my summary blog I chose to interview Brooke, President of SGA. This was Brooke’s first time at NACA. She learned new things and met many new people. Here are her responses:
Q1: What are two things you learned that you didn’t know before
A) From another School?
From watching and following other schools, I have learned how different their organizational structures are. I feel like most schools are smaller, so they incorporate their SGA and their PC (CAB) into one organization. I thought that was really neat, even though we are too big of an institution to do that
B)From someone in the BSU delegation?
something I learned from someone in our delegation is that we need to have a stronger bond and presence on campus. The four organizations that BSU brought to NACA are four very important and very much needed organizations for our campus. We really need to work together more, and use our powers for good and cosponsoring!
Q2:a. What will you bring back from attending NACA? I will be bringing back the ability to show pride and motivation for your organization. you have to lead through example
b. What impact did NACA have on you personally?
NACA taught me not only essential information for SGA, but also for my future career in Student Affairs/ I learned different things from its okay to say no and delegate tasks to others, to learning how to help hone your members to help make them the best that they can be for their organizations. (Basically how to utilize your skills)
Q3: What is one thing you would recommend to next year’s delegation to prepare for this experience?
For next years delegation, make sure to bring a notebook and a pen. You need to take a lot of notes, for yourself and your blogs! Also, you meet a lot of people while at NACA, first impressions are crucial here, make sure you have a positive attitude, friendly smile, and a firm handshake!
