Three ways you can answer the call to share your knowledge or simply show thanks:

  • Submit a session proposal for the #MIDWest18 Conference, hosted by Iowa ACAC in lovely Dubuque, IA, May 20-22. Official word hasn't been published about the form being open, but since I created the form AND it's LIVE on our web site...well...it's open.
  • Looking for an even bigger stage? NACAC is now accepting session proposals for the 2018 NACAC Conference in Salt Lake City, UT, September 27-29. Proposals can be submitted in the following formats:

*  Education Sessions (75 minutes, traditional session format)
*  Tech Lab (75 minutes, focused on the use of technology to better the everyday work of the profession. These presentations cannot be sales or vendor related.)
*  Learning Lounge (30 minutes, located on the Exhibit Hall floor in LEARN Booth)
*  Preconference Seminar (3 hours on Thursday morning before the conference begins, additional fee for attendees)

They're also looking for Proposal Reviewers. Reviewers are assigned 25-30 proposals, based on what was indicated in the top three areas of expertise and are chosen based on involvement in the association, educational background and membership status. The deadline for both proposal and reviewer submissions is Monday, January 8, 2018. Interested or have questions? Visit the 2018 Call for Proposals and Reviewers page.

  • Show your thanks! Share your brief thoughts on “what you're thankful for” to Publications and Marketing Chair Allanda Hageman, and they'll be published in the November blog. Want to remain anonymous? That's fine, too! Just let Allanda know in your email.
Thank YOU, ahead of time, and we look forward to sharing thanks for all things good!
