Career Courses

The Career Course program is designed to provide opportunities for conference participants to learn a new skill, or hone an old skill, while attending the convention. Courses are a half-day and are limited to a small group of participants.

The topics for the courses were submitted by ISA participants and selected by our Professional Development Committee. Career Courses will be taught by proposed course instructors and will receive a $300 stipend for their work in organizing the course. (If two or more facilitators are involved with a single course, ISA will allocate $500 per course and divide the stipend equally among all instructors.)

The courses are each four hours long and take place during the normal convention period. Participants should check their schedule prior to registering for a Career Course to ensure that there are no panel or other commitments that conflict. The Program Chairs cannot make schedule changes to account for the career courses.

Each course has an independent registration fee. Participants must also be registered for the Annual Convention. Please note that any withdraw and refund requests must be received by the Convention withdrawal deadline. Please contact ISA Headquarters should you need to withdraw from a Career Course.

Career Courses registration is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. No waitlists are available but once sold out, spots may still reopen due to withdrawals. Those still interested should check periodically for additional openings.
