The Conference Planning Committee has been working tirelessly to create a program that is intellectually stimulating and professionally relevant, with an abundance of networking opportunities and a little time to relax and refresh. You’ll find all this and more in one great location – the Manchester Grand Hyatt in sunny San Diego! The Manchester Grand Hyatt includes a spa, tennis/sports courts, on-site restaurants and many retail opportunities nearby in the Seaport Village and The Headquarters at Seaport District. Again this year, the Professional Development Committee has planned a Pre-Conference Institute (PCI), which is a half-day program on April 30, 2014, at the Manchester Grand Hyatt. Featuring a presentation on the various legal issues that can arise within graduate enrollment management, the PCI is an intensive program structured to allow participants to delve deeply into this important topic. The conference will kick off with the Welcome Reception in the Exhibit Hall on Wednesday evening. This reception is a great way to network with colleagues and meet exhibitors while enjoying delicious food and drinks. We hope you will make your travel plans accordingly to be able to join us. On Thursday, we are fortunate to have Dr. Mark DeVolder, renowned change expert and author, as our keynote speaker. Dr. DeVolder will share his thoughts on how to adapt to extreme change.

Joining us Saturday morning for the closing brunch speaker, Dr. Debra Noumair, Professor of Psychology and Education at the Teachers College, Columbia University, who will provide great take-aways for dealing with individual and organizational change.

Please view the session topics on pages 6-10 for a list of the sessions we expect to offer. Each session indicates the category topic and presentation format. Engage with Panelists. Panels consist of three to four participants and a moderator. These professionals, from across the country and around the world, discuss the topic at hand and bring perspectives informed by their expertise and related experience. Discover and learn from Presentations. These are educational sessions in which the presenter(s) shares information with a theater-style audience. Presenters integrate media (e.g., PowerPoint, video clips, links to websites) and engages the audience throughout the course of the session. Presentations are structured to allow time for audience participation, take-home messages and questions and answers. Participate in a Special Interest Forum. The Special Interest Forum (SIF), led by a facilitator, is a roundtable discussion during which attendees may discuss a specific topic of interest in a small group setting. This format maximizes the opportunity for open dialogue among conference attendees, as participants share their experiences and thoughts. Learn what various companies are doing and can offer the field of graduate enrollment management in a Vendor Presentation. Participants receive in-depth details on specific products or services that they may be considering using in their daily work. Vendors share how a product or service works and how it may address specific needs of session participants. Community Service Project THE NEED After working with gang members for five years, Reality Changers Founder, Christopher Yanov, felt that it was just not right that most inner-city teenagers today know more people who have been shot or killed in the street than people who are on the road to college. THE SOLUTION As a response, Reality Changers began in May 2001 with four eighth grade students near downtown San Diego with the hope of building first generation college students. Starting with just $300, Reality Changers has now given more scholarship awards to college-bound students than any other single organization in San Diego County since 2006 and became California’s leading tutoring program for scholarships in June 2009. Reality Changers consists of three core programs: COLLEGE TOWN for selected 8th-11th graders who will become first generation college students COLLEGE APPS ACADEMY for all 11th and 12th graders seeking to gain admission to college ALUMNI NETWORK for all program graduates seeking professional connections and lifelong friendships Today, Reality Changers’ 500 current members and 500 program graduates have earned approximately $40,000,000 in scholarships. The U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan met and visited with Reality Changers on three occasions and declared the program a “model for the nation." Most recently, Reality Changers was featured in a nationwide documentary on PBS. To donate, please visit www.RealityChangers.org and click on the “Donate” tab to help us build more college students! Please make sure that you donate on behalf of NAGAP so that we can track how much members and conference attendees give. NAGAP will match the donation up to $500. NAGAP Resource Center NAGAP will once again offer an area exclusively for networking. The time between sessions will be approximately 15 minutes to facilitate communication. We are asking each conference attendee to bring a supply (approximately 25) of the best promotional materials their respective schools use to share with other attendees. These materials will be available in the networking area. If you are looking for additional resources, this is the place to look for extra materials you want to take home with you. This area will also feature a job and message board for posting open positions at your institution, looking for jobs or to leave messages for colleagues. 5 Managing Change in Graduate Enrollment Management: Navigating Uncharted Territory 27 T H ANNUAL CONFERENCE REGISTRATION BROCHURE April 30-May 3, 2014 Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego, CA SCHEDULE OF EVENTS Wednesday, April 30, 2014 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. 9:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. 1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m 2:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. 3:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. 3:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. 6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. Pre-Conference Institute Registration Open Pre-Conference Institute Continental Breakfast Pre-Conference Institute Chapter Meetings Chapter Meetings Annual Conference Registration Open First-Timers’ Session Welcome Reception in the Exhibit Hall Thursday, May 1, 2014 7:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. 7:30 a.m. – 4:15 p.m. 7:30 a.m. – 8:30 a.m. Annual Conference Registration Open Exhibit Hall Open Continental Breakfast in the Exhibit Hall 8:30 a.m. – 9:45 a.m. Keynote Address: Harness the Hurricane – Adapt to Extreme Change & Achieve New Heights Dr. Mark DeVolder, Change Expert, Author 9:45 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. 10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. Refreshment Break in the Exhibit Hall EDUCATION SESSIONS *Keep track of the sessions you wish to attend by checking the box.
