Did you know? The National College Access Network (NCAN) has opened registration for its 2013 Regional Meetings in Baltimore, Indianapolis, San Antonio, and Berkeley, CA. Each year NCAN hosts a series of four Regional Meetings to facilitate local networking, sharing and professional development among organizations that help underrepresented students prepare for, apply to, pay for, and succeed in post-secondary education. The theme of this year’s meetings is Using Technology to Better Serve Students.
NCAN has determined that many of its members understand the importance of technology to collect, track and use data to improve their programs and serve more students more effectively. They know that technology is often the best way to communicate with their students and provide them with critical information they need to access and be successful in post-secondary education.
Each day-long session will includes a panel, roundtable discussions and a series of short inspirational “Tech Talks” sharing specific ways to use technology to serve students better. Regional Meetings are a great way to network with and learn from peers in the world of college access and success.
You should know? NCAN members can attend Regional Meetings free of charge, non-members pay $50. If a non-member attends a Regional Meeting, NCAN will apply your $50 registration fee toward first year of membership dues, once you join.
The National College Access Network (NCAN), an America’s Promise partner, strives to build, strengthen and empower communities committed to college access and success so that all students, especially those underrepresented in post-secondary education, can achieve their educational dreams.
