Rodriguez (Inaugural ELP Member, 2007 2009 Class), Florida International University "I feel more connected to the organization than ever before. I feel I have a wealth of resources at my fingertips. I feel I have developed as a professional in the field of advising and am being recognized at such. For those considering being mentors, this is a great way to help others out. Its a unique opportunity to form a special bond with another member of the association and help them to navigate the organization. For those considering being Emerging Leaders, this type of programming helps to increase the sense of community I already felt from being a member of NACADA.

Emerging Leaders Say Ross Hawkins (20112013 Class), Missouri State University "Although my goals have changed over the last two years, Im more involved with NACADA than ever before.... It is because of the Emerging Leaders Program and [my mentor] that Ive felt comfortable and confident as Ive navigated my path of involvement with NACADA... Thanks to all those before us who paved the way for this program. It has been one of the best professional and personal opportunities of my life. Emerging Leaders Say Heather Doyle (20092011 Class), Dalhousie University "The Emerging Leader program has not only increased my involvement within NACADA, but it has also influenced how I do my job, and how advising is structured on my campus.
