The conference showcases and educational sessions are available 24/7 in our APCA Virtual Community Workplace!
Your Spring Virtual Pass gains your access to the conference events, group discussions, fun events, and non-stop networking. Valid 1/1/21 through 5/31/21!
Many Student Life Advisors are wondering how to keep their boards engaged this year, and how to offer effective engagement and programming for their student body. Through the APCA Workplace, students in clubs, programming boards, leadership positions, SGA, etc. will not only be able to interact with each other in a fun, dynamic, engaging way, but they’ll also get to participate in weekly round tables, ed sessions, and fun activities! Novelties, concerts, performances, competitions, and much more will happen live, right inside the workplace. Your students will have fun and stay connected, and they will learn how to provide that same experience to all of their peers on campus.
Raise your hand if you’re overwhelmed right now. There are so many unknowns these days, and the thousands of blogs, social media groups, emails, webinars, and dare I say, Zoom calls are helpful if you can find the right ones in the madness. The APCA Workplace is designed to add value to your profession and to simplify your life, not add one more thing to you plate.
The Workplace is a safe, extremely familiar and easy-to-use space that is shared with your student boards and your peers around the country, and in your APCA region. Here you will be able to network, ask questions, share examples and best practices, watch valuable webinars, learn from the pros, attend keynotes and professional development seminars and round tables, and have fun! We’ll offer weekly training and fun activities that you can later share with your student body as well. You’ll be able to access all of this, all semester long, and beyond.
Miss seeing your friends face-to-face? Video chat has never been easier. Oh, and we’ve created Advisor Groups that are for ADVISORS ONLY. You will be able to talk to each other without any unwanted sales pitches or outside input, or student eyes, for that matter. Workplace is not connected to any of your personal social media accounts, so what you share here stays here!
All of our awesome agents and performers will be inside certain spaces during conferences and various events, but your Advisor Groups are always for your eyes only. Students have their own space too, which is always monitored and safe.
The Workplace is ALWAYS open! When you register for your Virtual Pass, you’ll receive an email invitation to join. You’ll set up a simple profile, and immediately see welcome videos and easy explanations of how to get started. This community will be active around the clock, and your Spring Virtual Pass is good from 1/1/31 through 5/31/21. The APCA Workplace welcomes you for as long as you’d like to stay.
If you’ve ever been to an APCA conference, you know that we are all about connection! This virtual experience will be as close to that as possible, just without all the hugs and high fives. The great news is that all of our amazing showcases, ed sessions, and keynotes will be hosted live and will include lots of interaction, but if you have to miss one of the live events, it will be immediately available to view for the remainder of the conference, and beyond! You’ll miss nothing. You and your students can choose who attends which live event, and you can watch together as a group, or from your individual computers, tablets, or smartphones any time of day or night.
You will be able to interact with all of the Agents to communicate your needs and get answers to any questions about the performers or activities you’d like to bring to your campus. Remember that APCA Agencies are bound by our policies and grievance procedures, so if you ever run in to any trouble, we’ve got your back.
The conference will also have our regular APCA SERVES! community service events, so you can involve your campus, families, and community! We will also hold our Graphics Competition and Awards Ceremony, so get ready to submit your best artwork and marketing designs, and your most successful and unique Virtual Programs!
All live events will be held from 11:00 am-8:00 pm Eastern Daylight Time, so our APCA Family from all over the country will be able to participate live throughout the day. Our Cooperative Buying Session will be held from 2:00-5:00 pm EDT on Thursday, September 24, so mark your calendars for this event so you can save big programming dollars and book both in-person or virtual events, programs, speakers, novelty drop-ship activities, leadership programs, and much, much more
You may find the conference schedule on the home page or in the Event Info submenu.
The Spring Virtual Pass is only $99.00 per person for APCA Member Schools! If you currently hold a Fall Virtual Pass, it's only $79 per person to renew your pass.That’s a fraction of the cost of a normal conference delegate fee, but the Virtual Pass includes the conference AND a place in the APCA Community Workplace for the rest of 2020. There must be a catch! Nope. Here’s the truth: APCA is a family-owned and operated organization, and our passion is student engagement. We know that engaged students are retained students, and we understand that Student Life professionals and programs make a tremendous difference in the leadership development, learning, and lives of college students. This is a crazy year, and we want to do everything possible to help you do your jobs and create an unforgettable and amazing college experience for your students. We’re all in this together, and in the APCA Community Workplace, we can work together to innovate, grow, and effectively engage our campuses.
Absolutely! Email us at email@example.com, or call us at (865) 429-9123. We’d be happy to chat, and even take you inside the workplace and show you around!
