We hope you're making plans to attend the 2011 NCPN Conference in Orlando, Florida and to celebrate the Network's 20th anniversary! The NCPN conference planning team unanimously approved the theme: Transforming Lives for a Strong America.
The Presenter Proposal Form is now available for those who are interested in presenting. If you’d like to submit a proposal, please submit by March 31. Presenters will be notified in May of acceptance. Also, please forward the conference “Save the Date” flyer to your colleagues and partners so they can mark their calendars and make plans to attend.
This year’s conference will be held October 12-14 at the beautifully renovated Orlando World Center Marriott. The conference will end on Friday afternoon instead of on Saturday at noon as in the past. By holding the main conference opening session at mid-morning on Thursday we will include the same amount of professional development hours as always. There will be over 150 main conference sessions from which to choose.
In addition to the main conference, full-day and half-day preconference workshops will be held on Wednesday, October 12. Preconference topics will be announced soon at www.ncpn.info and will include topics of interest for leaders responsible for implementing Career Pathways/Programs of Study (traditional and adult) as well as for counselors and teachers.
We hope to see you in Orlando!
David L. Bond, Ed.D. Sheila Wilson
