Conference Chair Welcome
Dear Region I Colleagues,
On behalf of the Regional Advisory Board and Conference Committee, I am excited to announce that our 2023 NASPA Regional Conference will be held in Portland, Maine from November 12-15, 2023 at the Portland Holiday Inn by the Bay.
We are looking forward to returning to Portland after 17 years and providing all of you the opportunity to experience a conference rooted in history and tradition. The Conference Committee will work on advancing their work of offering a connection-focused, inclusive, and impactful experience for attendees.
We are also excited to announce that the Call for Programs, Registration, and Regional Awards processes will go live on Friday, June 30th, 2023. Make sure to add this date to your calendars. You will continue to receive communication from myself and the conference committee throughout the year leading to our time together in Portland.
As we finalize logistics and solidify plans for the conference, we will be updating this website. Make sure to check the website often for the latest updates. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly.
I look forward to seeing you all in Portland!
