The North American Council for Staff, Program and Organizational Development (NCSPOD) Annual Conference

November 4-7, 2009
St. Paul, MN

Announcing the 2009 annual international conference. Mark your calendars for November 4-7, 2009 in St Paul, Minnesota. St Paul is a wonderful city, centrally located and easily accessible to our American and Canadian members. This year’s conference will have some exciting new features. Presentation Proposals are now being accepted.

NCSPOD invites conference session proposals that highlight the exceptional professional development work occurring at your institutions. Panel presentations are encouraged.

Saint Paul, Minnesota is the ideal location for our conference.  Situated atop the bluffs of the Mississippi River in downtown Saint Paul, the Crowne Plaza Hotel is one of the top hotels for Minnesota vacations. Relax in comfortable accommodations while enjoying the best of the Twin Cities including the Mall of America, Minnesota Children’s Museum, Minnesota State Capitol, Minnesota History Center, Guthrie Theatre, Science Museum of Minnesota, Walker Art Center, Ordway Theatre and many other attractions.

Presentations are sought in the following categories: Professional Development, Staff Development, Faculty and Instructional Development, Program and Organizational Development and Sustainability and Research/Innovations. Sessions can be designed for new and seasoned practitioners, faculty developers, staff developers, program developers, organizational developers and administrators as well as others interested in professional development within higher education and related fields.

Proposals will be reviewed by a committee of NCSPOD members. The suggested submission deadline is April 24th but proposals will be accepted until the program is full. Presenters will be electronically notified of their proposal status in June. Please indicate summer contact information if it varies from academic year contact information. Honoraria and expenses are not available for presenters and presenters are expected to register and pay the full conference registration fee. We invite proposals that not only explore the theme, “Navigating the Currents of Change,” but also engage participants and facilitate NCSPOD networking.

If you have questions, please contact: Judy Snyder, President of NCSPOD, Community College of Baltimore County, 800 South Rolling Road, Baltimore, MD 21228;
