New Advisor Toolbox

Welcome to NAAHP and Greetings from Champaign, Illinois! Whether you are a new member of NAAHP or returning to the association after time away, we are so happy to have you as an NAAHP member!

As you may know, I took the Executive Director position in October 2019, just a few months before the pandemic changed all of our lives. Like many of you, "business as usual" was upended, and the entire team at NAAHP changed course in strategy and support. Despite the 2020 obstacles, we have tackled top-down organizational structures, policies, and procedures with great success. We also began planning a year-round continued education program for our membership (NAAHP-Ed.). The framework is still being completed, but we are currently offering events regularly. We are working on strengthening NAAHP benefits for our membership, including a redesigned mentorship program, leadership & volunteer opportunities, and a complete resource audit to ensure the tools we provide to you are relevant and up to date.

All of you are not only "Members" but collaborators on building the success of the association. The National Office relies on your expertise and knowledge to create the tools and resources that directly impact the association's core pillars: Diversity, Education, and Leadership.

About This Toolbox

On behalf of the PD&L committee, we hope that you find this toolbox helpful in your career development as an advisor for the health professions. You will find links to information about the NAAHP organization, some other helpful quick links, and links to webinars. Most of the toolbox will be organized based on competencies. These competencies are divided into those that address the advisor to student relationship, the advisor to institution relationship, and the advisor to professional school relationship. How you address the competencies will depend on your own personal situation as ‘one size does not fit all’. The toolbox is continuously being updated as materials are developed and added so check back periodically to see what’s new.

Best Wishes,

The Professional Development & Leadership Committee
