Looking for professional development this summer? Join us for the HECA Professional Development Institute in Providence, RI. This institute is conveniently hosted just before the Discover HECA conference (June 17-19, 2019) so you can attend the institute and stay for the conference. Both education and business topics are covered. All consultants are invited to attend, but especially those with 0-6 years of experience. Open to HECA members, provisional members and non-members.       
"Best class I ever did!"
"So glad I came, I learned so much!"
"When will you do this again?"

The institute will cover topics such as:
Now you are a Professional- What does that mean?

- How to start and run an IEC practice.
- What pricing model works best for you?
- Marketing tips and suggestions
- Contracts and agreements
- Managing the college application process
- Working with special populations
- The role of technology in your practice
- Mock initial consultation and student college interviews
- Turning potential clients into contracted clients
- and more.

Designed as an interactive workshop, learn from faculty and participants. Faculty for the workshop include HECA past presidents: Bob Dannenhold, Cyndy McDonald, and Claire Nold-Glaser. 

Participants will receive a binder with resources from the institute. Participation in this workshop meets the new member orientation required of all new or prospective members.
