The NAADA Education Committee invites education session proposals for the annual conference of alumni, communications, development, student affairs professionals and alumni volunteers of land grant universities and colleges of agriculture and related sciences. This year's conference will be held June 17 – 20, 2014 at Penn State. The deadline to submit proposals has been extended to Friday, October 18, 2013. Also, please feel free to send your ideas for potential topics and speakers to the Education Committee Chair Jamie Lucero (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The following program goals for the NAADA 2014 conference sessions will guide the Education Committee in selecting from proposed sessions. Session proposals are strongly encouraged to support these goals:
Provide a conference climate which inspires creativity and innovation that generates fresh ideas from within and across each professional area of NAADA.
Deliver thought-provoking and engaging programming to stimulate learning and sharing that promotes creative approaches to change.
Empower professionals to seek creative ideas and solutions for greater impact and increased success through collaboration and networking at home and with NAADA partners.
The theme of the 2014 conference is Creativity Starts Here. Our hope is that the educational components of this conference will help every NAADA professional do just that!
