Tennessee Counseling Association
56th Annual Conference
November 23-26, 2013
Embassy Suites in Murfreesboro
“Counselors Making a Difference”

Call for Program Proposals

Hello everybody.  There are just one day remaining to submit a proposal to present at the Tennessee Counseling Association 56th Annual Conference, at the Embassy Suites in Murfreesboro, November 23-26, 2013.

In hopes of inspiring you to pull that proposal together, I have been sending along reasons to submit a presentation proposal.

  *   Reason #10:  Conference presenters will receive a $50 discount off their registration fee.
  *   Reason #9:  Presentations become data for your resume, portfolio, or marketing materials.
  *   Reason #8: "If you become a teacher, by your pupils you'll be taught."
  *   Reason #7:  You can be a card collector and trader.
  *   Reason #6: The best way to learn about something is to teach it.
  *   Reason #5: You will help improve our field.

And now for Reason #4:  Presenting helps you stand out from the crowd.  By having your name in the program and posted on a doorway, and by speaking to attendees, you can be assured that many people you may or may not have met before will remember that you spoke at the state counseling conference - even if they do not attend your session.  This can help your organization, your practice, and your school stand out and be recognized.

Our theme this year is “Counselors Making a Difference”.  This is an excellent opportunity to share your expertise with your peers.  We welcome all proposals, clinical or school counselors, professionals or students, researchers or practitioners.  Diversity of presentations is a hallmark of the TCA conference, and we hope this will be the biggest and best conference yet. So please take a few minutes and submit the attached form.

Deadline:  Submissions must be received by July 15, 2013.  Notification of proposal acceptance will be sent by Sept. 15, 2013.

I look forward to hearing from you!
