IEA One Conference: All HCAFA Members Are Welcome to Attend!

Register for the IEA One Conference 

Dine and discuss higher education funding or other concerns with state legislators Friday evening during the One Conference. The higher education dinner is scheduled for Oct. 20, followed by the conference on Saturday at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Oak Brook.

Sessions include an update on unemployment insurance benefits for contingent faculty; understanding the implications of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) on college students; and workshops on activism, crafting resistance, engaging students with online sources to enhance discussion, and developing engaging presentations.

For my money, the best part of the conference is getting to know other activists and getting more involved.

Contact Stuart Templeton, HCAFA membership chair,  at hcafamembership@gmail.com if you are interested in attending.  You may be able to attend with HCAFA at no cost to you!
