2023 UCEA Annual Convention Spotlight

September 27th, 2023 by


Dear UCEA, 

It’s time to prepare for the Convention!

In this Spotlight you will find all the information you will need to get ready for Minneapolis.

I do want to highlight some new and continued changes to the Convention schedule. We will continue to have a lunch break in the middle of the day. We will also have two new community building sessions in lieu of general sessions. One community session is focused on “Community of Caring” and the other on “Community of Advocacy.” In each of these sessions, you are invited to take part in conversations designed to promote collective action and well-being. Lastly, we will also have some open rooms available during some time slots that we are calling “Self-Organizing Incubators” that we hope you will use to meet as – or become – research teams. These three changes are all part of our continuing effort to make Convention more “breathable.”

A special thanks to this year’s planning committee: Lisa Bass, President-Elect, Zorka Karanxha, Daniel Moraguez, Darrius Stanley, and Mario Jackson. They have done an incredible job creating new Convention experiences for our entire community.

Please enjoy reading all about this year’s Convention!

Adelante UCEA,
