NCSPOD is proud to provide YOU an “Oasis in the Desert”, October 23-25, 2013 in the beautiful city of Tempe, Arizona at the Tempe Mission Palms Hotel & Conference Center!
Tempe is a frequent travel destination for people across Arizona, the nation – even the world! With impressive architectural structures, cutting-edge educational institutions, a multitude of city parks, community & cultural opportunities, and light rail public transit, Tempe is the ideal location for our 36th Annual Conference.
Professional Learners & Program Developers will have the opportunity to network with other community college professionals and explore new ideas for institution-wide practices that support and contribute to individual learning, regardless of faculty or staff status. This includes human resource training, new employee orientations, career planning, mentoring, goal setting, time management, and ethics. Other areas for SPOD learning will include staff development, staff orientation, mentoring, compliance training, leadership, time management, goal setting, evaluation, and ethics. Faculty and instructional learning ideas as well as program & organizational development practices that build and create vitality in an organization will certainly be the topic of networking sessions and small group discussions.
One of the traditional hallmarks of our conferences have been to offer participants a forum in which they are able to exchange ideas and liberally share new ideas and time-tested practices of continuously improving people, processes, and organizations. Of course, all this is done for our ultimate customers: our community college students.
