Are you still accepting proposals for the Annual Conference on The First-Year Experience?
Unfortunately we are unable to take additional proposals at this time. However, we highly encourage you to submit proposals for our 2019 National Conference on Students in Transition or 2020 Annual Conference on The First-Year Experience; the call for proposals for both will go out next summer.

What do I do with my session handouts?
Please send the conference staff a digital copy of your slides and/or handouts after the conference by emailing them to email@example.com. We will then upload them to our conference archives for others to access. If you have extra unwanted printed handouts at the conference, you may place them at one of the designated "Session Handout" stations throughout the venue.
