Getting the most out of our convention experience

Convention offers numerous opportunities to further our career paths as long as we know where to look.

By David O. L. Cheng and Jennifer M. Cooper
While conventions provide students with excellent opportunities to progress our research and grow through professional development, they can be overwhelming if we are not prepared. Many organizations create useful guides and programs that are helpful in making efficient use of our time at conventions and can assist us in planning ahead. Whether we are looking for added exposure to specific topics, student-focused programming, or improving our networking and mentoring opportunities, conventions offer numerous occasions to improve upon our career paths as long as we know where to look. It is our hope that this article will serve as a guide in helping us all to get the most out of our Div. 16 and APA Convention experience this year in Honolulu.
