Sponsored Program Reviewers: Thank you!

Thank you to those of you who served as Sponsored Program Reviewers for 2016 Convention!

Missed out this year? We'll need your help again next year! For those of you interested in participating a bit more in the Commission for Graduate and Professional Student Affairs, reviewing programs for the annual Convention (and specifically for our commission) is a great way to do that. There is a minimal time commitment (as you will be asked to review probably 3-6 programs and provide feedback), but your input is essential. Please also consider submitted a Sponsored Program for convention. If you have questions about Sponsored Programs, please contact the Sponsored Programs co-chairs Nicholas Stroup at or Alena Hampton at
