NASP Convention Workshop durations are half-day (3 contact hours), full-day (6 contact hours), or two-day (12 contact hours) Advanced Professional Training or Intensive Workshop. Many presenters are paid an honorarium and expenses, including travel, hotel, and per diem. Most NASP Convention Workshops are INVITED PRESENTATIONS. That is, the Workshop Selection Committee actively recruits experts on specific topics and selects these workshops in a separate process from the other proposal types on the reverse side of this flyer. However, a very limited number of workshops are invited from workshop proposals received in response to the Call for Presentation Proposals.
Internet access is not provided by NASP in workshop presentation rooms, due to the extremely high cost of this service.
The Paul H. Henkin Memorial Scholarship Award recognizes excellence in applied research or program design by a school psychologist who has recently entered the field. Individuals eligible for consideration are PRIMARY presenters whose proposals are accepted for presentation, who are NASP members, and who have been newly credentialed within the last three years, prior to the proposal submission deadline (Wednesday, June 11, 2014). Credentials may include Nationally Certified School Psychologist (NCSP) or credentialing by a state agency as a school psychologist. The recipient of the Paul H. Henkin Memorial Scholarship Award will receive reimbursement for convention registration fees, lodging as needed to fulfill the obligations of the award (presentation and awards ceremony), and transportation to the NASP convention for which her/his proposal has been accepted. Reimbursement cannot exceed $2,000. Individuals interested in being considered for the Paul H. Henkin Memorial Scholarship Award should complete the information pertaining to the scholarship on the online cover sheet and submit their proposal electronically. Upon notification of acceptance, individuals then submit (via e-mail) 1 copy of documentation to verify credentialing.
Important Scheduling Note. When presenters are involved in multiple session presentations, there is the possibility of unavoidable conflicts in scheduling. Only PRIMARY presenters are guaranteed that their multiple accepted sessions will not conflict. No schedule changes are possible based on conflicts for secondary presenters. Please consider this limitation before submitting multiple proposals.
If your proposal is accepted, you must register for convention. If you do not plan to present an accepted proposal, you must cancel your presentation by November 19, 2014.
Internet access is not provided by NASP in general program or workshop rooms, due to the extremely high cost of this service.
