Giving Thanks for EACE
This time of year, we all give thanks for our many blessings. Since Thanksgiving is tomorrow, here’s why some members are thankful for EACE…
Director of Employer Relations, University Career Services at Rutgers University
“When I think about our professional community and the many relationships I have developed during my 30-year career at Rutgers, EACE is the organization where most of these relationships started and flourished. Going to Annual Conference is like “going home” where you know that you will reconnect with your colleagues and bond, engaging in educational sessions and social events. EACE has not only been the gathering place for the exchange of ideas and the furthering of our profession, but it has also has provided me and many of my colleagues with many opportunities to network, learn and lead. I am thankful to have been part of this exceptional organization that is progressive, relevant and fun!”

“I’m thankful for the opportunity to serve the
Association and grow in my leadership skills.
Not only have I learned a great deal about myself,
I have also made stronger professional relationships
and personal friendships along the way.”
Ashley Rowe (formerly Reichenbach)
Assistant Director, Twardowski Career Development Center at West Chester University
“I am grateful for all the relationships I’ve developed with colleagues at other institutions and companies through EACE! Through committee involvement, especially conference planning, I made meaningful connections that have helped me grow as a career development professional. Who else would take a tour of historic Annapolis in the drizzling rain with me (see photo)!?! Thanks for all the support and memories, friends.”
Linda Kent Davis
Director of Career Development, Rhode Island College“I am thankful for the people who are EACE! I am thankful for the stories, the laughter, the friendship, the adventures, and the expertise we have shared together over the years. I am thankful that they have a place in my life and I in theirs.
Associate Director, Career Services at Ithaca College
“I am thankful to EACE for so many reasons, not least among them the tremendous professional development opportunities that it has afforded me. But even more than those, I am thankful for all of the friends that I’ve made through the association. I have so many wonderful memories from past conferences, committee and board work that I’ve done, and through the connections that were made beyond our roles in EACE. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!”
Program Director, University Career Center & The President’s Promise at the University of Maryland
“I’m thankful that EACE gives me an opportunity to build skills outside my current position (event planning, budget management and leadership, just to name a few). I also appreciate how members share ideas and best practices at the annual conference and throughout the year!”
Interim Director, Center for Work and Service at Wellesley College
Invest in Yourself … And
Take the time to be the best you can be! I am so happy that I volunteered on a conference committee over 15 years ago and EACE became my source of learning, laughter and renewal. THANKS to EACE for being a part of my life so many years.
