At the annual meeting of the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors (AFA) in Boston last week, Kara Miller M.Ed. ’03 was installed as the new president of the organization's board of directors.
The director of student and organizational development at Cornell University, Miller has been involved with the AFA since her time as a student in the higher education program at William & Mary. After serving on the graduate staff and the annual meeting planning team, she joined the board of directors in 2014.
As president, she hopes to expand professional development opportunities for members at every career stage and continue to advocate for the entire fraternity/sorority advising profession. She also hopes to establish a mentoring program for new professionals in the field.
"We continue to want to advance our research agenda,” says Miller, "and I’d also like to create new avenues for our members to share resources.” She invites students and professionals who are interested in researching the fraternal experience to connect and collaborate with the AFA.
“I believe I have the skills and experience necessary to lead AFA, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to contribute in this way to an association that has been very meaningful to me,” says Miller.
