This year, I’d like to attend Campus Compact's Compact20 conference
. I think it is important for us to have a presence there. Compact20 takes place March 29th – April 1st in Seattle, WA. Civic and community engagement professionals, engaged scholars, senior administrators, and community partners from institutions across the country will come together for over 100 sessions focused around "The Promise of Full Participation: Democracy, Opportunity, Voice." Through workshops, panels, keynotes, interactive discussions and more, the conference will explore ways higher education can contribute to building a democracy that leads to opportunity and voice for all. Compact20 is the largest and most inclusive conference focused on higher education civic and community engagement. Check out some of the videos and session materials
from previous conferences—it looks like a great event.
I think this conference is a great opportunity for us to learn from other institutions, engage with leaders in the field, connect with potential partners, and bring back new techniques and best practices to campus. I’m particularly excited about [SPECIFIC SESSION, EVENT, OR TOPIC] which I think will help us [APPLY TO YOUR WORK].
My attendance will cost about [COST], including travel, lodging, and registration. The registration fee includes my entire participation in the conference, as well as continental breakfast and lunch each day of the event. I will ensure my duties are covered while I’m away and will take detailed notes and give a short recap presentation for our team when I return.
Thanks in advance for considering my request. I’m happy to talk further about this opportunity and answer any questions you might have.
