Kelly's March 2017 Monthly Email Archive

Good Morning, Student Services Contacts:

We completed our 13th  annual Counselors Only Conference in partnership with the Oklahoma State Department of Education with a series of firsts:

-first time for practitioners proposals for sessions
-first time for 45 minute sessions
-first time for streaming live sessions (Thanks to the State Department of Education)
-first time for waiting list
-first time for no onsite registration

Thanks to all those who attended and all those who did let us know that their plans had changed so others could attend.  We received lots of good comments on the conference and are already looking forward to next year.

  The sessions that were live streamed from the For Counselors Only Conference are archived and ready for you to view. Here is that link:
