Call for Programs 

In order to create an inviting and successful conference this year, we need your help!

How can you do this? Submit a program proposal by January 4th to have a chance to present a breakout session during the conference. 

Why should you present? Here are just a few of the many reasons: 

  • Help advance the field of career development in the state of Virginia
  • Build your presenting skills (and your resume!)
  • Share the work you are doing at your university, company, or organization
  • Save some cash! Each accepted proposal comes with a $100 registration discount for up to two presenters. (Please wait until you know if your program is accepted before registering for the conference) 

We are excited to be together at Wintergreen April 19-21, 2023 and can’t wait to learn from all of you!
