Over lunch on Friday (12:45-1:45), we’ve planned two special presentation/conversations to support your engagement with AHEAD: a session to update you on the resources available and an opportunity to break into presenting with support. We hope you can join us for each.
AHEAD: More Than Just a Conference!
Marcelle Jones, M.S., Purdue University
Gavin Steiger, M.J.Ed., University of Houston Clear Lake
If you are new to AHEAD or disability resources/services in higher education or wanting to learn more about AHEAD’s resources, this meeting is for you! Representatives from AHEAD's Standing Committee on Membership Development and other AHEAD leaders will share the many resources available through AHEAD. We’ll highlight AHEAD’s online communities and resources, professional development events, and networking opportunities.
Present at the 2019 Conference!
Karen Pettus, Ph.D. University of South Carolina
AHEAD is committed to supporting members’ professional development and fostering the diverse views and experience that newer members bring to our profession. Therefore, we are pleased to introduce a New Presenter Mentorship. If you haven’t presented at a national conference before and are interested in taking that step at AHEAD’s annual conference in Boston in 2019, join us! We’ll talk about the call for presentations process, give you resources to support your proposal, and discuss plans for providing support throughout the year leading up to Boston.
