2021 Newcomers Conference
Registration for the 2021 CACRAO Newcomers Conference is now available. This year, Newcomers is a virtual Brown Bag Lunch Series! It will be held from July 12 thru August 31. All live sessions will take place at noon. With the intention of removing a barrier to participation, we will be offering the 2021 Newcomers Conference free of charge to member institutions.
Each week, a seasoned professional will present on a self-contained topic. To enhance the learning opportunity and continue the conversation, participants will be provided with questions and discussion points to bring back to their respective offices.
The goal of the Newcomers Conference is to provide an orientation to the admissions profession. Being mindful that new staff members' start dates will vary, we will leave the registration open through the last session at the end of August. Session topics include but are not limited to:
- Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in Enrollment Management
- What I Wish I Knew in my First Year
- Recruitment Travel: College Fairs & School Visits
- A career in Admissions: Exploring and mapping your progression
- Building Relationships with School Counselors
- College Foundation of North Carolina + SC Commission on Higher Education
- Customer Service
- Public Speaking / Presentation Skills
As each session is scheduled, we will continue to update the information below with a detailed schedule. Please register here to access the upcoming virtual Brown Bag Lunch Series.
