Phi Theta Kappa Advisor Pre-Conference
Hilton Austin, Austin, Texas

Phi Theta Kappa is again partnering with NISOD’s Conference to host a pre-conference training opportunity for Phi Theta Kappa advisors. NISOD, a membership organization committed to promoting and celebrating excellence in teaching, learning and leadership at community and technical colleges, hosts an annual conference every May in Austin, Texas.

This two-in-one professional development opportunity allows advisors to be better-equipped for their Phi Theta Kappa leadership role while also enjoying a discounted rate to participate in the full NISOD Conference, May 27–30. There is no charge for the Advisor Pre-Conference to be held Sunday, May 28, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. Advisors are not required to register for the NISOD Conference in order to attend the Pre-Conference.

While the Advisor Pre-Conference will especially benefit new advisors, any advisor or interested community college faculty/staff/administrator may attend. Space is limited and advance registration is required no later than May 19, 2017. If a waiting list is necessary for the Advisor Pre-Conference, preference will be given to advisors who have never attended an Advisor Institute/Pre-Conference.
