If you've been to a professional conference and thought, "Hey! I can do that!" it may be time for you to apply to present at a professional conference.

Not only does presenting at a professional conference help share your best practices with other professionals it also bolsters your presenter skills, provides an opportunity to network with professionals from around the country, and builds your resume. Another benefit to presenting at professional conferences, discount registration. Many conferences waiver conference registration fees or offer deep discounts for presenters. If presenting at a professional conference interests you, you're in luck! 'Tis the season for conference proposals! Below you will find links and information for conferences currently accepting proposals and conferences that school counselors present at that will soon be opening their call for proposals.

In Santa Ana we do amazing things that are not common in our county or state. Programs like Joven Noble, Xinachtli, Restorative Practices, COST, MacTivities, Achieving College Partnership, the HEC position, our community partnerships for mental health counseling, Fly in Program, and on and on and on are SAUSD efforts to be celebrated and possibly shared with our fellow education colleagues. If you’re interested in sharing a best practice with your local, national, and global colleagues, I'm more than happy to assist you or your site with your proposal. Make sure to work with your site administration before applying to present-especially for out of area conference that may require travel and expenses. If you are selected to present please let us know, we'd love to support you.

Good Luck and Happy Applying!
