Share your Expertise and Collaborate with Colleagues

The National College Transition Network invites you to submit a proposal for its 12th annual conference. Share an innovative and effective practice, resource, or tool; a partnership and collaboration strategy; or a policy and advocacy approach aimed at strengthening our field’s capacity to ensure that adult learners have access to and success in the education, occupational training, and career needed to earn a family-sustaining wage. The conference will feature over 60 workshops by experts and peers. General conference sessions are 90 minutes in length and accommodate between 40-60 attendees.

  • All presenters, including co-presenters, need to register for the conference.
