The Early Bird Deadline is August 31, 2014. That's only 4 days to take advantage of the lower price. Starting September 1, you will need to pay the full price for the conference. It's hard to believe the summer is almost over! September will be gone before we know it.

One of the great aspects of the CAFAD Conference is being able to share ideas and concepts with other Fine Arts Deans from across the country. One way to do this is during the IGNITE Sessions. Ignite Sessions "are designed to deliver brief and focused 5 minute presentations on projects, ideas and perspectives that illuminate the leadership and administrative realities of fine arts deans". After each presentation is an opportunity for everyone to add their perspective, ask questions and discuss the presentation.

There are still openings for anyone interested in delivering an Ignite presentation. For more information, please contact Dr. Hans vanderLeest at or by phone: 506-364-2302.
