Guide the Region as Our Next Advisor

The Regional Advisor is a crucial member of the Regional Board, and helps guide discussions and decision-making that impact institutions throughout our region. They support not only students, but on-campus advisors in understanding and engaging with NACURH and the Central Atlantic Affiliate by providing context and educational opportunities. This position is perfect for entry-level or mid-level Student Affairs/Higher Education professionals to take their advising to the next level and receive training on supporting the RBD and conferences.

Don't believe it? Hear what our current Regional Advisor, Paisley Martin, had to say about her experience:

"Being the Regional Advisor for CAACURH, and getting to work with students from across our region, has been a unique and fun experience. I have really enjoyed seeing students from different schools and backgrounds come together to successfully run this region on the Board of Directors. An added bonus has been the relationships I have created with advisors across the country!"

"Attending RBC 2017 (Robert Morris University) was my first step into the world of CAACURH. As a Hall Council member, I had no clue how amazing the world of residential advocacy was. By the end of the conference, I was hooked, and since then I have been able to see how each conference continues to bring people closer together."
