NCECA still has opening for discussion groups for
the 1999 conference in
Columbus. These sessions called Topical Discussions and
NCECA Connections

with common
interests who would like to discuss pertinent issues and
ideas in an
informal setting.

We welcome proposals for group discussions through January
15, as space is
still available for several more groups. The discussion
format is a great
way to present your interests and make valuable personal
connections. Group
leaders have derived a great deal of satisfaction from their
involvement in
this segment of the conference which generates so much
interest through
informally shared concerns and ideas.

As a Group Leader, you would briefly introduce the topic,
get the
discussion going, and facilitate the proceedings, assuring
that everyone
participates and that the discussion is not dominated by one

Conference schedule as
a Discussion Leader. It may be possible to receive support
from your
institution or community as a participant in the National

Passion and Process"a fun and challenging conference. As an

strive to meet the varied needs and interests of all of our
