Staff Council Call for Presenters


The UMKC Staff Council has begun preparing for the 2020 Professional Development Conference and has issued a call for proposals.

This is an opportunity for members of our university community – and others with relevant expertise – to share their knowledge and experience with UMKC staff. Presentations should last roughly one hour; previous topics have included

  • Managing Your Career
  • Supporting Colleagues with Mental Illness
  • Mentoring and Leadership
  • Networking
  • Discovering your Personal Style and Strengths

The annual Staff Council Professional Development Conference is an example of the UMKC commitment to enhancing professional development opportunities for staff. Since 2014, staff have come together in the spring for a day of learning, collaboration and networking. This conference, sponsored by UMKC Staff Council, planned and supported by the efforts of staff volunteers and attended annually by over 200 of our staff colleagues, is our premier learning event for UMKC staff.

Please complete this form to propose a presentation to share at the conference. Please complete your submission by Monday, Dec. 23.
