Conference Common Read
Once again, the SACSA Conference Committee has selected a common read for discussion at the upcoming conference in Greenville. This year's book is entitled, A Strategic Guide to Shaping Your Student Affairs Career. In her book, author Sonja Ardoin presents the student affairs community with tools to navigate professional, intentional growth and development. She offers a five-component career strategy: lifelong learning, extending your experiences, planning for professional development, networking and connecting, and self-reflection. Understanding there is no one-size-fits-all, Ardoin encourages individual authority as well as balance in life and career development.
