Schendel to Coordinate Regional Confab
Kaye Schendel, assistant director of student activities at UW-River Falls, has been appointed as the National Association for Campus Activities regional conference coordinator for the Wisconsin region.
"I am excited and ready for the challenge, personally and professionally," Schendel said. "I look forward to performing at this new level."
As conference coordinator, Schendel will select a regional conference committee, be responsible for all aspects of the regional conference, and produce a post-conference evaluation and final report that will include recommendations for future events. The regional conference will be held in April in Stevens Point.
NACA is a non-profit organization founded in 1960 that focuses on student leadership development, enhancing programs outside the classroom, and improving the campus activities profession. The organization also works to increase campus-wide programming, including both educational and entertainment activities. NACA includes over 1,200 colleges and universities and 600 talent and promotional agencies nationwide.
Schendel's position as conference coordinator makes her a primary contact within the region and provides numerous connections with national booking and talent agents. She hopes this opportunity will open doors for UW-RF and gain further publicity and recognition for the University.
