General Information about Graduate Student Poster Sessions
Poster sessions are designed to allow graduate students to present a facet of their graduate studies. The selection of a topic should be one of special interest to the presenter. We suggest using a project you have completed in your graduate coursework as the basis of your poster session presentation. Past presentations include school counselors’ use of technology, diversity issues in counseling, understanding student concerns, MARC Jr., intervention outcomes data, etc.
Students set up their poster displays and handouts of materials about their topic in the conference exhibit hall. During scheduled time blocks, conference attendees come by your table area to view your poster, ask questions about your topic, and continue on to view other poster presentations. Poster sessions promote collegial sharing, offer the experience of conference presenting, and provide an excellent opportunity for professional development and growth. Poster presentations are limited to a maximum of two presenters.
• Discounted registration rates as a graduate student and a presenter at the conference
• Enhance your resume with a professional conference presentation
• The description and title of your poster along with your name and institutional affiliation printed in the conference program booklet
• Opportunities to attend workshops and break out session and explore the conference exhibits
• Professional networking with other graduate students, counselor educators, administrators and practicing school counselors from across the Commonwealth

• Proposals will be selected and all presenters notified no later than January 15, 2020 via the email provided on the registration form.
