    Members of TEXAAN,

    It is with the most honor and pleasure to serve as President-Elect for TEXAAN in 2019-2020. Through this role, I am very excited to share with you the goals, aspirations, and vision, I strive to accomplish throughout the next three years.

    This year, my main focus as TEXAAN President-Elect is to greatly enhance all collaboration efforts between Region Chair and Region Chair-Elects. I am planning monthly scheduled meeting times with each Region Chair and Region Chair-Elect to evaluate professional development opportunities offered or not offered for region members. It is also my goal to facilitate conversations with Region leadership to enhance engagement of region members. This can be done by implementing innovative methods to engage region members through social media and professional development opportunities.

    I am very excited to begin my journey as a leader for TEXAAN. For the next three years, it is my greatest intention to enhance, promote, and advocate the following:

    ● Mentorship and support to TEXAAN members

    ● Opportunity developments

    ● Member recognition

    TEXAAN is a wonderful organization that helped me discover my passion for advising and it is my hope as the future president of TEXAAN for others to feel the same way as I do. I care deeply for the organization and hope to create opportunities that will help advisors ignite their passion for the profession. I hope these opportunities will allow advisors to be become involved in ways that will challenge themselves to be the best advisor they can possibly be.

    As my journey as TEXAAN President-Elect begins, I encourage members to reach out to me or any of the members of the TEXAAN Executive Board with any questions, concerns, and suggestions that would be helpful to improve the organization. Thank you all for your support as I begin this incredible opportunity with TEXAAN. I look forward to meeting new faces and helping TEXAAN be the premier advising network of Texas.

    Betsy wants TEXAAN to not only connect academic advising to professional development, but also recognize their dedication to the profession through the TEXAAN awards program. She also wants to see TEXAAN grow and expand with the current Executive Board. She currently works at the University of Texas-San Antonio but grew up in El Paso. She has been in higher education for 13 years, eight of those in academic advising. She has served with TEXAAN since 2014. Outside the office, she married her high school sweetheart 11 years ago, and has two children.

    Nemets is very excited to initiate opportunities for members to become more involved with TEXAAN. Rachel works at Texas A&M University and loves connecting with her students and cultivating a fun and positive work environment with her colleagues. Outside of work, Rachel loves spending quality time with friends and her dog, Charlie Brown, and working out. When she's not in College Station, you can find Rachel floating down the San Marcos River!

    Greetings Fellow TEXAAN Members!  

    I am Dr. Terrance McClain and I would like to first give a BIG thanks to each of you that have chosen to become members of our organization. WELCOME to TEXAAN! In the past, our membership has been based on conference attendance. As an attendee of the conference, you were automatically provided membership. Due to Region 7 being in Texas this year, TEXAAN was not able to host its annual conference. Thus, we had to promote ourselves and demonstrate the benefits of being a member.  

    To those that are veterans of TEXAAN, thank you for renewing your membership. To those of you who are new to TEXAAN, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a member. As we move past our conference excitement, I wanted to share with you my vision and goals for this upcoming year.  

    Vision: To become the the premier advising organization for academic advisors in the state of TEXAS.  


    • Increase membership participation  

    • Create additional ways to be involved  

    • Host more webinars 

    • Provide consistent communication  

    • Increase awareness of TEXAAN 

    Your 2019-2020 Executive Board for TEXAAN is dynamic and has already hit the ground running. We have so many great things in the pipeline and I cannot wait to share them with you. TEXAAN is on the move and I am expecting greater!  

    Finally, if you ever have concerns or would simply like to reach out, please feel free to email me with your thoughts and concerns. Again, thank you for being a member and know that you are appreciated.  


    Dr. Terrance McClain
