Feb. 12 is the deadline to submit proposals for the 2016 Conference for Community College Advancement. The fifth annual event will have a new format to better meet the needs of attendees. There are three types of 60-minute sessions:

  • "How to..." Practical, specific ideas on how to accomplish something. For example: How to redo your website; How to manage scholarships; How to increase employee giving; How to develop a social media plan.
  • "CASE studies." Individual or panel presentations that provide multiple perspectives on a topic. For example: Case studies - Crisis communications; Case studies - Board development and management.
  • "Leadership Challenges." You would host a session and provide background on a topic, then lead a robust discussion. For example: Leadership Challenge - Attracting and retaining talent; Leadership Challenge - Transitioning a foundation board; Leadership Challenge - Ethical dilemmas in fundraising.

The conference offers programs for all aspects of advancement: marketing and communications, alumni relations, advancement services and fundraising. Organizers also seek sessions of interest to foundation board members and presidents/chancellors. Submit your proposal online by Feb. 12.

The conference is Oct. 5-7 at the San Diego Westin Gaslamp Quarter. Read more about the conference and get ideas from last year's program.
