“Organization is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it’s not all mixed up.” – A.A. Milne
I’m looking forward to having you all as colleagues for quite a long time – the material from Meeting 5 will help make that happen.
One thing we were all reminded of is the importance of being organized! Keep all information and documents related to your Professional Activities Report (PAR) in a folder – paper and/or electronic copies. This makes completing your PAR much easier, which in turn, means your promotion and tenure process will be less stressful as well.
The agenda for Meeting 5 includes the links to the PAR form and the Promotion and Tenure Timeline and Template. Taking a look at these documents now, will help you get organized for the future. If, at some point, things seem all ‘mixed up’ just let me know and I will gladly provide some guidance.
