Working Group/Conference-Within-A-Conference

Working Group/Conference-Within-A-Conference participants commit to attend a small group of related or organized sessions. A volunteer coordinator for each working group proposes a theme, selects and/or organizes sessions for the group to attend, promotes the working group, and facilitates communication among participants. A working group may meet before and after a session(s) or during lunch for additional discussion and interaction. MPSA staff takes care of scheduling logistics and maintaining rosters. This is an excellent opportunity for individuals and cohorts to host focused discussion around a specific theme or specialization without the hassle of logistics! Please contact MPSA Professional Development Manager Lewis Hoss at to learn more about working groups.
