Conference Mentoring Program

As part of the conference experience, NCPH is dedicated to making everyone in attendance feel as comfortable and connected as possible.  This can be difficult for students and new professionals, who are often trying to find their specific interests and goals, locate the people who can help them along the way, and do so in a way that is respectful and courteous.  Many people in attendance this year are coming to the NCPH conference for the first time, and are unsure of how to approach potential contacts, how to choose the right sessions or workshops to attend, and how to maximize the conference experience.

Working Groups

What’s an Annual Meeting “working group”?

NCPH working groups are seminar-like conversations of 8-10 people before and during the annual conference that explore, in-depth, a subject of shared concern.  Working groups have a purpose they are working toward, a problem they are actively trying to solve.  The working group proposal must articulate this as well as an end product(s) that the group seeks to create.
