2024-2025 Annual Conference

Call for Preconference Workshops

Preconference Workshops November 6, 2024

Preconference workshop proposals are open.

The 2024-2025 School Counselor Conference sponsored by the Wisconsin School Counselor Association will be held November 6-8, 2024, at the Kalahari Convention Center in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin. We invite you to share your expertise with other counselors! Tell them about the unique programs developed in your school district. The purpose of the conference is to provide new challenges for professional and personal growth.

Presentation Opportunities include half-day and full-day preconference workshops. WSCA pays one fee of $650 for a full-day presentation or $400 for a half-day presentation. A preconference workshop must draw at least 10 participants for it to be held. The speaker is responsible for the cost and arrangement of travel and lodging. Additional details for making these arrangements are available at wscaweb.org.

Topics for your consideration may include but are not limited to resilience, trauma-informed schools, mindfulness, data and interventions, developmental guidance, consultation, and personal and professional development.

Criteria used for review and selection of program proposal will be based on timeliness of topic, interest in the topic, clarity of organization of the proposal form and geographic representation. Diverse and innovative programs are encouraged. Programs will be chosen that meet the needs of all levels of school counselors and other professionals and individuals interested in counseling.

Note: Presentations encouraging the purchase of books, materials or services will not be accepted.

WSCA policy states that all presenters or participants who wish to sell materials at the conference must buy an exhibit space.

WSCA will supply the needed AV equipment.

Presenters attending the full conference are asked to register and pay the appropriate fees. There is no fee charged for those attending only to present their program.
