Annette, 

As the Professional Development Officer for NCLCA, I have attached the Call For Proposals for our conference this fall in Memphis (Oct 2 - Oct 3) and the brochure outlining the variety of professional development opportunities we offer our members. 

You can see by our conference session themes, that we cover a wide variety of topics at our conferences. We currently have approximately 275 members, with our numbers growing each year. 

I have been a member since 2004, with our conference in Baltimore. I attended the NCLCA (Summer) Institute in 2005, which provided me a great overview of the different pieces of a learning center. I presented at the 2005 conference in Milwaukee, after receiving the Brenda Pfaehler Professional Development Grant in 2004. I somehow then found myself running and being elected as the NCLCA Professional Development Officer for 2006-2008. 

The one advantage I like about NCLCA is that we are a smaller organization that allows you to get as involved as you want in the organization. Our general membership and Board members are involved in the other organizations that have already been mentioned in other replies to your request. I have kept myself to NCLCA because I like the size of the organization for networking and can't afford holding memberships in several organizations. :-) 

Good luck with your quest...

Subject: Training Opportunities 

Hello: I am a new Canadian member of the list serve and I am looking for suggestions on the most appropriate conference to attend. In Canada there does not appear to be a national association like CRLA, NCLCA or NADE. I have been on a number of websites and have seen various conferences. I oversee a Learning Service, which focuses primarily on study skills and tutoring at a very small southwestern Ontario university . I am not new to this role, but my training is in counselling not development education. Any suggestions that you could provide would be much appreciated. Thank you. Annette Poechman
