We are still finalizing the presentations for this year, but typically there are sessions ranging from student development to personal enrichment. Take a look at our Past Conferences page to get an idea of what has been offered in previous years.
I don't work at The University of Texas at Austin, can I still attend?
YES! PDD is open to all higher education professionals who are able to attend. If tickets are still available, please feel free to register!
What meals will be served at the conference?
We will be providing a luncheon during the mid-day break.
I would like to request a vegetarian/gluten-free meal. How do I do that?
When you register for your ticket on Eventbrite, you should indicate your dietary needs.
Do I HAVE to download the PDD 2017 app?
No, there will be printed programs available, but the app is recommended.
When is the last day to register?
We will be accepting registrations up to the day of the event. Payment can be made online with a credit card or you can request an invoice to be forwarded to your department contact. Unfortunately, we are unable to do Interdepartmental Transfers (IDT). If there are any questions about payment, please email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is parking included with the registration?
Yes! All registrants will be provided with a dash permit to print out if they choose to drive to the conference.
Do I need to be a member of ACA or APSA to attend?
No! Anyone who feels they could benefit from the Professional Development Day Conference is welcome to attend.
If my proposal is selected, will I still need to pay the registration fee?
