Call for Proposals -- GCDA Mini Conference

Proposals are now OPEN for our second annual mini conference! Our theme this year is "Linking Technology to Career Development." We want YOU to be a part of another successful event: visit the event page to learn more about how to submit a proposal.

Our keynote speakers will be the "Technology Twins" -- Deb Osborn, PhD and Melissa Venable, PhD. They will be delivering an inspiring -- and entertaining -- message on how to capitalize on technology to help you in your practice and ultimately serve your clients best! Read more about them here.

The all-day Mini Conference will take place on Friday, March 10, 2017 at Oglethorpe University in Atlanta. CEUs will be provided. 

Last year we had a great turnout and very positive feedback, so we look forward to again hosting a quality event!
