NAPAHE Featured Testimonial

Anne Marie MarateaFor those who are thinking of joining NAPAHE but are on the fence because they don't have the words 'PA' in their titles, NAPAHE is not just for presidential assistants. As a Dean's Assistant, I have been a NAPAHE member for four years and have attended three NAPAHE conferences. The professional development opportunities are great, and the colleagues I have met are always a resource in my pocket.

Titles are just titles. The skills you learn, the connections you make, and the advice you receive as a member of NAPAHE are relevant to any administrative role, whether it be for a Dean, a Vice President, a Provost, or the President/Chancellor.
