Greetings Small Private Schools of Michigan!
It's time to begin thinking about programs at the upcoming MSPS Conference on April 2nd 2011. In this packet you will find several ways to contribute to the educational offerings for MSPS 2011:
This is an excellent opportunity to show the attending RAs what goes into presenting an effective program as well as a chance to reuse some of those awesome sessions you may have presented to your own staff during RA Training! It is also a great opportunity for veteran or even graduating RAs to pass on their expertise. Any student attendee could answer the call for programs and impact the educational quality of the conference.
If you, or someone from your institution, is interested in presenting, please complete the attached proposal form. If RAs or professional staff from your campus have an opportunity to brainstorm ideas for program offerings they would like to see at the conference (especially if there is a hot topic, new trend or something that you're hoping for outside insight), please complete the program request form and our conference staff will do their best to find programs and presenters to meet your needs. Included in the conference schedule there will be a one-hour session for roundtable discussions when attendees will be able to move about and engage in multiple discussions- this is a great opportunity for an eager first-time attendee or new RA!
All proposals can be submitted electronically to Bristol Day or visit the conference websitefor more information. Conference proposals submitted by March 1st will be given first consideration, but programs and roundtable proposals will be accepted on a rolling basis as space allows in the conference schedule and facilities.
Some 2011 conference highlights will include:
