Whether you've been in the profession for two years, twenty years, or more, we invite you to share your expertise and SUBMIT A SESSION PROPOSAL for our 54th Annual Conference at the College Park Marriott from May 2-4, 2019! If you want to see what the program will look like, check out the Conference At-a-Glance.
Proposals should be on any area of interest to high school counselors and college admission professionals, including hot topics like those on our list of Suggested Session Topics. Session proposals can be for a full 75-minute session or for a 7-10 minute 'Anchor Talk'.
Our conference sessions are the best opportunity for attendees to have a better understanding of the job they don't do and how it relates to the job they do! We are looking for motivated, passionate presenters for our conference sessions and welcome all session proposals. However, we'd like to see if we can get beyond the typical sessions to provide some deeper understanding of the college process from all sides of the desk. When thinking about what you'd like to present, please consider co-presenting with someone who can offer another view point on the same topic. For example, if you want to submit a session on working with transfer students, include a co-presenter or a panel of presenters who offer various view points, such as a 2-year college admissions counselor, a 4-year college admissions counselor, a high school counselor and/or a community-based organization. A person from each of these areas can offer great insight into the same topic.
Completing the online form is easy if you have the following information ready before you submit:
