The Pre-Conference Experience: An Opportunity to Engage

This week we have the co-chairs for the pre-conference as our guest bloggers, Kathleen Smith and Nikki Raimondi from the Advising First program at Florida State University. Remember, the pre-conference takes place 9:00 a.m. - 5:15 p.m on Sunday, October 3 in Orlando. Thanks for serving as co-chairs and sharing information on a great opportunity!

We want to take this new forum to highlight the pre-conference experience and promote the benefits of attendance. Throughout the last year, we have had the privilege of reviewing proposals and selecting a wide range of sessions that promise the highest quality conference experience!
  • Have you ever left a concurrent session feeling fully charged by the presenter’s knowledge, and wishing the session could be extended for at least another hour?
  • Maybe you’ve read the work of a particular author or researcher in our field, and daydreamed about the questions you would ask if you had the chance to meet face-to-face?
  • Is there an improvement you’d like to make in your advising program and you know you would move forward if you could only find a time to talk through your ideas with advising professionals who are committed to the same process?
You know where this is headed! The pre-conference offers a rich, meaningful, hands-on experience where your unique conference goals can be achieved. We encourage you to go deeper, stay longer, engage fully, and focus in on your current advising needs!

There are still openings in many sessions, so take a few minutes and review the abstracts. You can also view the 2010 pre-conference selections by using the interactive schedule planner. These workshops offer the widest array of advising topics facilitated by the most seasoned professionals! We guarantee that you will not be disappointed… see you in 25 days!
