Fall Business Meeting

The Fall Business Meeting serves as a crucial platform for collaboration and decision-making among members of the Residence Life Professional Association. The meeting aims to review accomplishments, discuss key challenges, and set strategic goals for the upcoming year. It serves as a forum for sharing best practices, discussing policy updates, and outlining new initiatives in areas such as inclusion, wellness, and professional development. During the Fall Business Meeting there are also opportunities to get involved through the elections process for certain Board positions. Participating in one of our annual Fall Business Meetings is an integral part experiencing the sense of community the RLPA is known for.

The 2023 Fall Business Meeting will be held at Simon Fraser University from November 2 – 3, 2023.
