When: February 29 - March 1, 2012
Location: San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter - San Antonio, TX


The Faculty Practice Pre-Conference is designed for those who promote, administer, and engage in faculty practice. The pre-conference format for this group is new in 2012, and the same program precedes both the Doctoral and Master’s Education Conferences. This event is in transition from the previous biennial Faculty Practice Conference to a new event to be determined and coordinated by the Practice Leadership Network. Topics this year include the worth and value of faculty practice; balancing multiple roles; the continuing challenges of contracting, coding, and billing; and the important links between faculty practice and research. The pre-conference immediately precedes the Master’s Education Conference, allowing educators to attend both events.
