Countdown to NISOD 2017

When Do Conference Sessions Begin?

Preconference Seminars, Special Sessions, Breakout Sessions and Roundtable Discussions kick off at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday. Be sure to make your travel plans so that you don’t miss out on any conference events!

Case for Funding

NISOD’s annual conference is the “must-attend” event for community and technical college educators! But budgets for professional development can be tight. It might be difficult to get the funding you need to attend events that will equip you with new skills and strategies that will help you do your job better. 

Let us help you make a case for funding. 

Simply download this word document and customize it for your institution. Then forward it to your supervisor. It can’t be easier than that!
