Mom: Knitted Blessings

In this season of celebrating mothers, I want to tell you about one special gift my mother shares with people.  My mother learned how to knit when she was young and over the years she even taught other people to knit, including me.  These days she spends most of her time knitting.  My mother has Alzheimer’s so she relies on my dad to remember their plans for the day, take care of meals, and so much more.  One thing my mother remembers without fail is how to knit.  She can make three or four scarves in one day provided they are not too busy running errands or going to appointments.

Get Connected with Social Media

Social media is a vital tool for every educational office professional. Social media  sites can enhance your networking abilities, and provide valuable industry news, professional information and career resources. NAEOP currently offers different social media sites to include Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Twitter and a Blog. 
The NAEOP Twitter site was very popular during the 2016 NAEOP Conference #NAEOPConf16. NAEOP started this year's conference with a Twitter competition. Congratulations Lisa Gonzalez (Texas) for receiving $100 off next year's conference registration and Georgette Council (South Carolina) for receiving a 2017 NAEOP Conference Padfolio. 
Not all social media sites are right for everyone so learn about each one and take it one step at a time. What is your favorite NAEOP social media site? Is there a social media site you would like to see added to the current NAEOP social media platforms?
