The National College Access Network (NCAN) invites you to submit a proposal to present at its national conference that will take place September 28-30, 2015 at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel in Orlando, FL. Please circulate this opportunity widely among your colleagues.
This year we will be celebrating NCAN's 20th anniversary and are turning to you, our constituents and supporters, to help make this year's conference our most meaningful learning and networking event to date. As always, the goal of this conference is to provide professional development and networking opportunities that help participants serve more students, improve existing services, and raise college-going and completion rates. Proposed conference sessions should be designed to teach participants a skill or strategy so attendees have specific ideas to implement upon returning home.
