Dear MAP Members,

I am thrilled to see the momentum and excitement for the launch of the McNair Association of Professionals (MAP)! At the 2020 MPPI conference, we held our first officer elections and now have a full officer team:
Additionally, at MPPI we held our first Annual Business Meeting for MAP. Attached please find the slides from this meetings.
Committee Work – Call for Chairs and Members
In order for MAP to be the organization we envision – one that supports, empowers, and elevates the work of McNair staff – we need YOUR help! The Organizational Committee has spent the past year creating the structure and framework for MAP. Now, the real work will begin with our committees. If you are interested in serving on or chairing a MAP committee, please fill out this formby Saturday, February 15th. Short descriptions of the committees can be found within the survey or in the attached slides. Full descriptions of the committees can be found in our Constitution and By-Laws.
Finally, I want to formally thank the Organizational Committee (listed below) for the work they have done behind the scenes over the past year to make MAP a reality.
  • “Tina” Maria Tavera, Augsburg University
  • Steven Fernandez, Baylor University
  • Isabela Corzo, Florida International University
  • Clyde Wilson, Jr., Oklahoma State University
  • Abraham Pena-Talamantes, Suffolk University
  • Jon Crider, Texas Tech University
  • Juan Estevera-Martinez, University of California, Berkeley
  • Michael Aldarondo-Jeffries, University of Central Florida
  • Anthony Albecker, University of Minnesota
  • Jeremy Bloss, University of Missouri
  • Cammi Valdez, Wellesley College
Without the countless hours, the Organizational Committee put into the creation of MAP, we would not be able to move this organization forward. Thank you again for all of the work you have done to sustain the vision of having such an organization to support McNair staff!
Should you have any questions about MAP or the committee work, please do not hesitate to contact me ( or any members of the officer team. We are excited about this next phase of MAP!
