Student Chapter Showcase
Sat, May 2, 2020
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM CT
On Saturday, May 2, 2020 from 9:00-10:00AM at the PPA Annual Meeting you will have the opportunity to showcase your Student Group activities ! The poster can include anything about your chapter, including new initiatives, fundraising, philanthropy, and/or education! We want you to show off what you’ve been doing!
The goals of this session are to spend time getting to know each other, highlight an awesome initiative that you have managed, and share ideas and strategies between chapters. You will be able to learn from the successes and mistakes of your peers while showing off your specific chapter. This poster session is a little different than a scientific session, but it will be a lot of fun and serve as a great way to make connections with other students to share ideas, wisdom, and tips for creating a successful student group.
If you are a new chapter or one that has yet to get any huge initiatives off the ground, that’s okay! We still want you to present a poster and let us know what your chapter is up to!
Each interested student group will have the opportunity to prepare a two-dimensional poster as a means of sharing information about your chapter. Poster contents can vary, but we encourage you to choose things that really highlight what you find unique about your group including information about membership, organization and leadership structure, and initiatives or activities in which the chapter has participated. Pictures are strongly encouraged! The poster should serve as a snapshot of your chapter and include relevant information, such as how long you have been a chapter, how many members you have, and information about your school (location, enrollment, etc).
Please be creative and really show others what is so great about your group!
