FINAL NCLCA Call for All Proposals
Extended Deadline
Monday, April 30, 2012
NCLCA has extended the deadline for proposals to Monday, April 30 to ensure everyone has an opportunity to complete their proposals during this busy time of year.  That Final Deadline is quickly approaching.
The Mission of NCLCA, the National College Learning Center Association, is to support learning center professionals as they develop and maintain learning centers, programs, and services that enhance student learning at the post-secondary level. To help meet that mission, the 2012 annual conference will be held October 3 - 6, 2012 at The Peppermill Hotel in Reno, NV.
The NCLCA Board of Directors and the Conference Planning Committee are excited to announce this year's theme - "It Takes a Village" - which reflects the idea that there are many connected pathways to help all students reach their full academic potential.  If you have an experience in one of the following areas dedicated to student excellence, submit a proposal to share your experiences and expertise with your colleagues:

 *   Best Practices for Learning Centers
 *   Developing Training for Learning Center Programs
 *   Developing and Assessing Learning Center Outcomes
 *   Program Start-up and/or Evaluation
 *   Using Small Group Academic Support Programs
 *   Using Today's Technology/Social Networking
 *   Learning Centers in Graduate Schools
 *   Online Learning Centers
 *   Finding Funding in Tough Times

There are two types of proposals: regular sessions which offer in-depth information about a topic, and Poster sessions which are relatively informal conversations about the basics of a topic.  I have attached a sample proposal<>  and a sample poster proposal<> for you to follow as a guide. Submit proposals electronically at The deadline for submitting proposals is Monday, April 30, 2012.

If you have any questions about developing and/or submitting a proposal, please contact Jenny Pippen ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>), NCLCA Professional Development Officer.  Any other questions about the conference can be directed to me.
