JOIN THE NCHEP PLANNING COMMITTEE
We're eager to work with you in planning this year's conference and are requesting volunteers to join the 2020 NCHEP Planning Committee.
If you are interested in participating in the conference planning process and are available 3-5 hours each week from February to November to volunteer on the committee, please fill out the brief application (linked below).
We encourage self-nominations, especially from people who have been formerly incarcerated. We have found it helpful to have a committee comprised of both new and long-time conference attendees, people with varying levels of experience in event planning, and people with a range of experiences in the field of higher education in prison.
If you would like to be considered for the planning committee, please complete the 2020 NCHEP Planning Committee Application by midnight (EST) on Sunday, February 9, 2020. The planning committee will be selected by the Alliance for Higher Education in Prison Advisory Board and staff. The full committee will be announced in mid-February on both the Alliance and NCHEP social media accounts, and the Alliance newsletter.
In addition to this website, conference updates can be found on Twitter and Facebook (both @NCHEP2020). Or feel free to email us with your questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
