JOHN BROWN UNIVERSITY HOSTS 2019 CBFA ANNUAL CONFERENCE

Adjunct Track

Changing Business, Unchanging Faith: 

A Call for Whole Person Development

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2019

JOHN BROWN UNIVERSITY, SILOAM SPRINGS, AR

 

CBFA holds a conference every year, but this is the first year to include a one-day adjunct track. Generally, CBFA members and conference participants are full-time business faculty, but we want to extend our adjuncts an invitation to join us for a specific adjunct day at the CBFA conference for a reduced fee. In order to qualify for the adjunct rank and promotional pricing, you must not currently hold a full-time faculty or staff position at another institution.  If you currently are a full time faculty or staff member or if you would like to attend the entire conference, you are welcome to register for it at the regular rate.  Attending the adjunct track will give you the opportunity to learn more about CBFA as well as network with other business faculty from all over the country.  The adjunct track includes three morning sessions, lunch during the Annual CBFA Business Meeting, a poster session following lunch and two adjunct-specific sessions. More information is below.  To register, hit the"Register for CBFA Conference Adjunct Track" button below.  This will take you to a page where you will complete a registration form and pay the conference fee.  Looking forward to seeing you in October!
