2022 Administrators Conference

USPAA Administrator’s Conference

Wednesday, June 8 through Friday, June 10

Hosted by the University of Notre Dame


Theme:  Silver Linings Make A Difference 

How we operate has changed, drastically. Let’s gather to share what we have learned, what we have changed, and how we plan to move forward in this new normal. Really, what normal? We hope you will consider sharing your silver lining initiatives. It can be related to program management, admissions/recruitment, programming, professional development, assessment/evaluation, etc.  Mid-February we will send a call out for conference proposal presentations and open registration. Questions? Email Diane Majewski:


Keynote Speaker: Dr. Leidy Klotz

Dr. Klotz studies and writes about how we transform things from how they are to how we want them to be.  His latest book, Subtract:  The Untapped Science of Less, offers a scientific appreciation of how to access the option of subtraction, eliminating what you do not need.  He also explores why we underuse this method and often overlook this powerful option.  An associate professor at the University of Virginia, Dr. Klotz writes on applications of his research for design, art, parenting, personal finance, climate change and many other fields.

Call for Proposals

Let’s gather to share what we have learned, what we have changed, what we have left behind that we did not need, and how we plan to move forward in this new normal.  WE WANT YOU—to share your silver lining.  We get our best ideas from one another, and we are open to new topics.  Access this link to send in your presentation proposal.  Submissions are due before May 6.
