Please join us for the next meeting of the Chicago Area Assessment Group, where we will be discussing: What knowledge, skills, and qualities does the successful assessment professional need?
Date: Thursday, October 4, 2012
Time: 10:00 – Noon (CST)
Location: Loyola University Chicago, Water Tower Campus
Lewis Towers, 5th floor, room LT506 (turn right when exiting the elevator on 5; take the door marked Office of the Provost)

Getting there: Lewis Towers is located at 111 E. Pearson (between the Hershey's Store and Einstein Bagels). You can get there from the Chicago red line stop by walking about a block east to Chicago and Wabash, turning left, and then turning right at Pearson and Wabash.
Parking: For parking options, please see: http://www.luc.edu/parking/watertower.shtml
Be mindful that you need to validate your parking ticket at Loyola to receive the discounted rate. Many of the lots also have lower rates if you get there before 9.
You can also try to find a metered spot on Pearson. It's cheaper than the garages if you are just going to be a few hours. There are also spots on State and the east-west streets near campus.

RSVP: Please let us know via the following Doodle poll if you plan to attend or not. We will need a list of names of those attending in person for the security desk.

Preparation for meeting: If you wish, please bring job descriptions for assessment positions at your institution—we can use these to get the discussion started. Some things you may want to think about before the meeting:
What experiences are most valuable for professional development in our field?
What are things to look for when hiring an assessment professional?
What type of education or training is needed to be a successful assessment professional?
