As I approach my first year in my job (affectionately known as the Alphaversary) on December 7th, I thought it would be interesting to share the opportunities I have had so far.  Let me start by saying that my position with Alpha Xi Delta Fraternity Headquarters is not based around traveling.  Along with many members of our staff, I am a “telecommuter”.  Working from my home office in Raleigh can be challenging at times, but mostly means that I have to schedule outings so I actually leave my apartment throughout the day/week.

As the Membership Growth Resource Coordinator, my main responsibilities of creating and maintaining our organization’s resources that pertain to membership growth (read: recruitment) can be handled from the comfort of my home office.  However, I absolutely relish any opportunity I can to get on the road.  I am 100% one of those people who thrives in settings of social facilitation.  Human interaction can be a powerful thing for someone who spends the majority of their time in solitary confinement!

My hope is that I will be able to go more in-depth into each event I attend or facilitate in the future – offering more insight into what my job actually is and what pushes me forward.  I don’t have any other work-related travel plans for 2016 – BUT I do have some exciting things ahead for 2017.  You’re more than welcome to stick around for that 🙂
