Happy New Year, OACUHO!
I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and a well-deserved break. As we begin the new year, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your amazing work in 2023. I hope you have taken time to reflect on the resilience, adaptability, and excellence in supporting our students and operations you have demonstrated.
As we resume our normal operations, many of us are welcoming new students who are joining for the winter term. This is an opportunity for our communities to expand and create new connections and help create lifelong friendships!
I also want to acknowledge that January often is the start of the student staff hiring cycle. This is a crucial process across our association, as we seek to recruit, train, and retain the talent for our teams. Student staff members are integral across many functional areas in Housing. I encourage you to share your experiences and insights with each other and how we can collectively improve our application and selection processes. I am encouraged by the conversations happening at various levels and through various avenues. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out across the association!
As we embark on a new year, I invite you to reflect on your goals and aspirations for 2024. What do you want to achieve, learn, or improve in your role? How can you contribute to the vision and mission of OACUHO? How can we work together to enhance the quality and impact of our work?
I am confident that 2024 will be a great year for OACUHO, as we continue to grow, innovate, and collaborate. I am proud of the work we have done so far and I look forward to continue working with you in the coming months.
On behalf of the Board of Directors, I wish you all the best in 2024!
