Some pictures for you on my 11 day west coast adventure!
Some pictures for you on my 11 day west coast adventure!

My conference season has concluded, and now I’m back into the daily grind that I was used to before I was gone for 11 days (after ACPA I went to San Francisco for some R&R). During ACPA I had the opportunity to meet professionals and fellow graduate students that I have ‘known’ (via Twitter) for a while now. I’m so lucky to be in a field that I can connect with so many people in small amount of time, but now comes the follow-up.

How to stay connected with the people you meet…email, hand written notes?

Staying connected with people you have met at conferences should be intentional. Send a tweet (or DM), an email, a hand-written note. All of these gestures can help you in the long run to create meaningful connections and give you a chance to have a mini reunion at the next conference (always fun)!

Now’s the chance- keep up with those connections that you have made (at ACPA, at NASPA, at SROW).

What are you going to do to be intentional?
