Call for Workshop Proposals
The Workshop Proposal process for the 2013 National Conference is not yet open.
Call for Programming Expo Proposals
Active Minds is seeking proposals from students, staff, and other professional presenters for its Programming Expo. The Expo is an opportunity for presenters to show off their mental health programming successes to all conference attendees. Each presenter is provided with a six foot table from which they may display and present their program. This year, we plan to have between 30 and 40 participating presenters, and we hope one will be you!
We are encouraging chapters planning to attend the conference to apply for an Expo spot early, particularly over the summer months, even if their funding is not yet approved or available. Also, consider that your school may have funding opportunities for conference presenters. Submissions may include campus-wide programming, community programming, chapter development programming (e.g., chapter retreat), and more.
To submit your proposal online, click here. The final deadline for expo proposals is September 22, 2013.
Every year Active Minds offers Pre-Conference Leadership Workshops for our chapter members. These sessions will be held in the morning and afternoon on Friday, November 15 prior to the official kick-off of Conference.
Check back this summer for updates on the 2013 Pre-Conference Leadership Workshops.
