The Region V Conference Planning Team invites you to attend the 2017 Region V Conference at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee.

The team has been hard at work recruiting educational sessions, vetting keynote speakers, and organizing activities to make this one of the best conferences to date.

The University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee celebrates its namesake city through myriad relationships with hotels, social events, and collegiate friends for the 2017 Region V Conference. Less than a mile from Lake Michigan, the 328,000-sq.-ft. Student Union will host the plenary and educational sessions for the conference, while servicing the 22,000 patrons who visit the building on a daily basis. 

Educational Sessions

Region V is currently accepting educational session submissions for the 2017 Regional Conference. To provide a wide variety of robust programs that are applicable to all conference participants, we are encouraging professional staff members to co-present with students, where appropriate, to bring as many participants into the presenting process as possible. In addition, we ask that professional staff members encourage any graduate or undergraduate participants to submit programs that would benefit the conference.

Educational session proposals will be accepted until September 30.
