The MIDWest Programming Committee is seeking new and creative session ideas, including those that are specifically geared toward high school counselors or college admissions personnel, as well as those applicable to a broader audience of college counseling professionals.  Here are a few tips: 

  • We welcome individual presenters, as well as group presentations, and encourage you to consider how you might lend your expertise to this fantastic regional event!
  • If you are interested in being connected with others for presenting, please submit a tentative proposal using the online form and indicate your interest in collaborating. The committee will do its best to match you with other potential presenters.
  • If you know someone who may be a dynamic speaker or may have something valuable to contribute to our program, please encourage that person to submit a proposal. Feel free to provide the committee with name(s), so we may reach out as well.

Deadline for submissions is February 15, 2016. 
Session presenters can expect to be notified of their selection by early March.
