Emeriti Breakfast

Friday: 7:00am 8:15am

Dear Colleagues! I have been thinking about ways for ACSP old timers (like me) to get together at the ACSP Annual Conference. I suggested that the ACSP arrange an Emeriti Breakfast. I’m definitely not thinking of having a formal program or speaker(s), just providing a time and place for us to get together. Please email if you’re interested in participating in this special breakfast at the Denver conference. There is no cost to attend. I’d also appreciate any other ideas you may have on ways for us to get together during the conference or communicate throughout the year.  ~  Sincerely, Dick Klosterman

FWIG Business Meeting & Luncheon

The Faculty Women's Interest Group (FWIG) hosts a luncheon each year at the ACSP conference. The luncheon is typically held on the Friday of the conference and is an opportunity for students and faculty in the planning academy to network, encourage and support each other, and learn about FWIG’s initiatives in promoting the advancement of women in the academy. 

For over 20 years, FWIG has been active in shaping the agenda within ACSP and the planning academy regarding women faculty and students. Through services such as the FWIG yellow book and the annual FWIG CV book, we have helped women prepare for, enter into, and proceed through their academic planning careers.   Join us at the annual luncheon to learn more about the interest group and meet our members.
