We need your great ideas and expertise to offer insightful, professional education sessions to our members. We invite you to submit your education session proposal for the 2016 Canadian Campus Card Conference held at Mohawk College in Hamilton, Ontario.

Education Sessions

60 Minute Session – features a speaker(s) with a Power Point presentation and includes time for audience questions and answers. You may also want to coordinate a panel discussion.

Round Table Discussion Facilitator– This is a casual format with no presentation.  Attendees are invited to pull up a chair, listen in, and share their thoughts and experiences.  This is a great opportunity to engage with your colleagues.  Each discussion needs a topic and volunteer leader who is willing to guide the conversation and ensure everyone has an opportunity to participate.
