Hotel: Philadelphia Marriott Downtown
"I attended my first NAPAHE conference in Washington DC as a young(er) very inexperienced PA in 2001. It was pure delight to sit in on the first session for new PA's, people just like me who were new to their position and just beginning to find their way. But the rest of the conference was just as rewarding. The first evening I attended a networking dinner with six colleagues I was meeting for the first time.
The lively dinner conversation resulted in lasting friendships across institution types and sizes. At the table were PA's from institutions ranging from very small private colleges to the chief of staff of one of the largest public universities in the US! And yet we had so much in common! It was truly remarkable. Each conference I have attended in subsequent years has been worth every penny. I learn so much from the sessions and the people I meet, and I have grown tremendously as a person and as a professional; taking risks to participate on workshop panels, and one year even presenting a workshop of my own on the topic of sustainability. It is through NAPAHE that I have been able to build collegiality and close friendships with PA's from our sister institutions. NAPAHE has truly been a life-line for me!"
