New NCDD member Jack Becker shared this announcement with the NCDD Discussion List yesterday, and I thought I’d share it here. I attended the first student conference (“Connecting the Dots”) in Alabama last spring, and it was a great event. I gave a workshop on NCDD’s Engagement Streams, which was a big hit! This year, all presenters are asked to cover their travel, lodging and registration expenses, though I’m not sure how much registration will be (it was very reasonable for the first conference).

This is a call for proposals for our second annual national student conference in Oxford, Ohio, March 16-19, 2011. Proposals due Friday, February 4, 2011.
Please save the date and join us at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio for the second annual national student conference on:

This year’s conference theme is “The Citizens’ Toolbox: What’s in Yours?”.
