2018-19 Adviser Forum East has ended
**Reminders: Please bring a notebook and pen to every session, and wear your CAC name badge at all times.**

Dear CAC family,

Welcome to our Adviser Forum East in New York City! We are thrilled to have you here in the Big Apple and are grateful to our host chapter, the awesome NYU Corps!

Our theme this year goes to the heart of CAC’s mission -- Advancing Opportunity. The goal over the next few days is to recommit ourselves to advancing opportunity in various ways. We hope you will discover best practices from your peers, engage with the research, reflect on your journey and what may lie ahead by interacting with the alumni panel and industry workshops, and be inspired by our guest speakers whose stories capture in powerful ways the journey to advancing opportunity.

On behalf of our national team and Board of Directors, we are grateful for the work that each of you — 716 advisers serving 210,000 students in 16 states across the country — do every day. We continue to build a national movement at a critical time in our nation’s history. Let us commit to ensuring every student hears those four key words, “I believe in you” and, together, we advance opportunity.

It is an honor to serve with you!

Adviser Session #3: The 411 on 1:1s

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

So what’s essential for advisers to know about 1:1s? How to make 1:1 meetings as effective as possible. Come explore strategies for conducting an initial meeting, a 2nd semester meeting, and addressing common challenges to meeting with students. We’ll conduct mock 1:1s that will give you the opportunity to role play and navigate the array of situations and obstacles that many low-income, underrepresented, and first-generation students face.
