Conference preparation for the early career professional
Feeling excited, nervous, or scared before the conference?
For many, this will be the first opportunity early career professionals have had to attend an in-person physical activity conference. Preparation is key in ensuring that you are able to effectively share your work and build your professional network, and importantly, have a great time!
To support early career professionals to get ready for the conference, the ASPA Early Career Network (ECN) have developed a field guide with key information and resources.
What’s included in the ECN field guide?
The conference guide provides information on:
- Who are the ECN and what do we do?
- What is ‘Mahi Tahi’?
- Networking and maximising your time at a conference
- The ECN Selfie challenge
