The Michigan Career Placement Association is a professional organization whose goal is to provide direction, placement, and leadership services to all personnel who assist in the placement of all students into work-based learning experiences. The placement process must maintain the highest standards of quality, integrity, and efficiency to the benefit of employers and the various client groups.

To that end, the Michigan Career Placement Association, in partnership with the Michigan Department of Education Office of Career and Technical Education, is offering our annual conference for professionals working in the placement process. The MCPA two-day conference will provide an overview of key information and point to additional resources, which are useful when designing structured, well-organized programs at the workplace for students.

You will hear updates from our State Department partners as well as introductory sessions for new coordinators. This conference is essential for educators, business and industry, and other partners engaged in work-based learning programs that are targeted toward high school age students.  Please bring a laptop or other device with you to the conference so you can access the resources that are available. We will be using LiveBinder again for our speaker materials.

Lodging is available at Mission Point based on single or double occupancy at the discounted price of $120 ($25.00 additional per guest for triple and quad occupancy). The room block will open on March 1, 2018 and the room rate is guaranteed until August XX, 2018. Reservations can only be made by calling group reservations at (800) 833-7711. Rooms are based on availability at the time of calling in.

The deadline to register is Friday, September 28, 2018.
