#ADP 12: Campus & Friends Showcase and Poster Session

ADP & TDC

Campus and Friends Showcase
& Poster Session

June 9, 2012 | 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. | Salon I 

ADP and TDC campuses, partners and friends will display, share and celebrate their work and help others learn how to promote civic engagement on their campuses during our annual Campus & Friends Showcase. The Showcase will occur over lunch on Saturday, June 9 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Salon I at the ADP/TDC 2012 National Meeting.

The Showcase is designed as an exhibit hall with tables available for presenters. People love to see what other ADP/TDC campuses have done; the Showcase also serves as an important networking opportunity for project participants to connect with national leaders in the civic engagement movement.

This year’s Showcase will also include a Poster Session featuring the research and civic engagement efforts of individuals and organizations. We’ll see you in San Antonio!
