A Fresh Pack of Batteries
Abstract:
A quick story about why Nontalie chose the Energizer Bunny as her theme. When here parents were
announcing they were going to have a baby girl, they sent out cards with pink bunnies on them. Once
Nontalie was born her dad starting calling her “bunny bun” and to this day the name still sticks, only
with dad though.
Nontalie also has an energy source that seems to never run out, she always seems to keep going and
going and going, hence the theme of the Energizer Bunny.

                                                     Some of the things that Nontalie does as an NCC:
                                                               Build a delegation through spirit points
                                                            Write delegate contracts to ensure proper
                                                                                   conference attitudes
                                                   Develop the conference committee which includes
                                                                  the delegates from each conference
                                                         Works with the RHA Advisor to submit travel
                                                                   authorities and reserve housing van
                                                          Prepares bids and programs to be presented
                                                      Design spirit items for conferences like banners,
                                                                               clothespins, t-shirts, etc.
   NACURH 2008                                       Register delegates for the conferences in a timely
                                                      manner and hold pre-conference meetings with
           Prepare NCC-IT training to help RHA members understand everything about being an NCC
        Stop by the school bookstore to get spirit items such as tattoos and stickers. She even works
                   with the bookstore manager to get some items donated, such as swap shop items

Working with her Delegations:
      Delegates are chosen to attend conferences through the spirit points they have earned
      throughout the year. Nontalie also works with the RHA secretary to monitor spirit points.
      For every conference, Nontalie makes fun travel booklets to keep her delegates entertained
      while traveling
      Spirit has been very important for
      Nontalie because she always has tons of
      life and energy. Before each conference,
      she holds multiple delegation meetings
      not only to cover conference
      expectations, but also to: spray paint
      clothes pins, make t-shirts and banners,
      review spirit cheers, and any other spirit
      items involved with conferences.                                        SAACURH 2008

Working with her Advisors
      Maintaining contact with the advisor on a regular basis is not only essential, it’s crucial, especially
      around conference time. The RHA advisor Liz Powell has been so amazing and helpful with
      getting check requests and answering all questions about travel. Janine Weaver-Douglas is
      another advisor that has taken Nontalie and her delegates to conferences and she has a great

                                                                                                            3
       spirit and energy and is always ready to get started on a new adventure and be as supportive as
       possible. Nontalie really would not be anything without her advisors.

Conferences:
      Her 1st conference was No Frills 2008:
          o Which helped her learn all
              about boardroom as a NCC-IT
           nd
      Her 2 conference was NACURH 2008:
          o Stepped into her official role as
              an NCC and learned how to
              communicate with other
              schools and the RBD                   GRHO 2009
          o She brought back so many ideas
              and a new passion and enthusiasm for the year ahead
           rd
      Her 3 conference was SAACURH 2008:
          o Her awesome delegation won the spirit award the first night of SAACURH!
          o Worked to present a passive program at SAACURH (Tye-Dye Thursday)
      Her 4th conference was GRHO 2009:
          o Where she submitted a Program of the Year and a winning Emerging Leader Award Bid
          o Her delegation won most spirited and best roll call!
          o Nontalie also won most spirited delegate!
          o Made contacts with other schools in the state to give and receive help on how to be an
              awesome NCC as well as to improve her RHA!
      At the arrival of each conference, Nontalie has meetings
      with her delegation to help them decide who should go to
      what program (in order to bring back as many different
      programs and ideas as possible). This meeting is also
      designed to set the “game plan” for the weekend so that
      everyone know where they should be, answer any
      questions from delegates, as well as make sure each
      person is motivated to do their best!
      During conferences, Nontalie attends as many programs
      as she can, other than that, she is in boardroom which is honestly one of her favorite places in
      the world. The long hours of legislation, bids, and the occasional bit of drama makes her world
      go round.
      At the end of every conference, Nontalie takes away so much and feels rejuvenated and eager to
      get back to work once she gets home!

Correspondence
       Nontalie has interacted with the GRHO executive board to talk to them about legislation and
       plans for future conferences
       At SAACURH 2008, she helped prepare a passive program and Clemson wanted to show their
       gratitude by presenting VSU with a certificate; unfortunately, the certificate was not ready for us
       that night. Nontalie emailed
       several people to work on getting
       the certificate to show those back
       at Valdosta that their hard work
       was paying off.
       Recently, the NCCs were emailed
       to vote over legislation that could
                                                                                        VSU & GA

       eagerly casted her vote the
       moment she was able.

       NRHH as well as how to get more involved on the regional level
       Nontalie has formed a team from her school to participate in the case study at NACURH 2009

Holding a Charge
Excited for the future and makes her happy:
Although Nontalie hasn’t been an NCC for very long, she has worked very hard become more active in all
aspects of her job. Most importantly she wants to make a stronger name for her school within the state,
region, and nation. Nontalie gets true joy working in an organization where she can make a difference
on her campus, state, region, and nation. She has gained a lot of self confidence and gained the courage
to speak out in boardroom which transfers over to increase her voice on campus. Working with RHA
and going to conferences has given her the assurance that she wants to work in student affairs as her
profession.
