2019 Annual Conference and Business Meeting

The CPAK Executive Committee is excited to invite you to the 2019 Annual Conference and Business Meeting at Murray State University in Murray, Kentucky on Friday, January 25, 2019!
Murray State Curris Center
As part of our mission to reach all corners of the Commonwealth, we’re headed west to the beautiful city of Murray, KY. Our friends and colleagues at Murray State University have been kind enough to play conference host for 2019. This year’s conference is focused around the theme of Advocacy. We want you to feel empowered to advocate for yourself, your organization, your students, your community, and the profession of Student Affairs. We’re looking forward to a great program that will facilitate professional development, networking, and probably a little fun too!

We’re also bringing back the CPAK Hall of Fame Reception and Awards Ceremony that debuted at the 2018 conference. Join us for the evening following the conference to celebrate colleagues that have left an indelible impression on Student Affairs. A ticket for this event is included with your conference registration.

If you require any special accommodations in order to fully participate in the conference, please notify Ashley Gei, Conference Chair, at ashley.gei@uky.edu or (859) 218-3320 by January 11 to discuss the options available to support your attendance.
