Call for Proposals for November Meeting

In an effort to offer additional programming and networking opportunities for our members, the Program Committee encourages workshop proposals on professional development.

Are you seeking opportunities to mentor? Do you have learning, insight, or technology tips to share? Are you a wizard with social media and personal branding? Do you have an ability to create a CV from a résumé? Do you have specific advice for creating a successful portfolio and navigating the job market? Please consider leading a 60 to 90 minute workshop or intimate roundtable for 6 to 15 individuals that engages members pursuing academic and non-academic careers. We would love to have you!

● Career Diversity in Religious Studies and Creative Careers in Church and Faith-Based Non-Profits

● Developing a Public Voice and Making a Living from It

● Envisioning Academic Alternatives

● Job Transitions over 40 with a Ph.D.
