Webinar Events

MIACADA Webinars


On Wednesday, November 15, MIACADA will host the NACADA webinar, “Building Advisor Competency: Developing a Profession of Advising through Training, Development, and Scholarship,” at three locations across the state.

We are currently seeking host institutions. Hosting is easy and provides an excellent (and convenient) professional development opportunity for your campus advising community, as well as other advisors within driving distance. The only requirement is that you have space for 30-40 people and the IT equipment to accommodate a streaming webinar. If selected, all you have to do is order the webinar through the NACADA website and submit your receipt for reimbursement to the MIACADA Treasurer. You will then be responsible to communicate location and directions to those who will be attending at your site – MIACADA will provide the RSVP list, which includes attendees contact information.

Information about the webinar can be found at:

If you and your colleagues would like to host the webinar on your campus, or have any questions, please contact Anne London, MIACADA President-Elect, at londonan@gvsu.edu.
