The 4th Annual Great Lakes College Testing Conference will be held May 18-19 at the Park Inn Radisson in Toledo, Ohio. The event, sponsored by the Ohio College Testing Association, is your chance to get together with testing professionals from the Great Lakes region for networking, benchmarking and learning about best practices. While the conference officially begins on Thursday, May 18th, we will be continuing the tradition of testing and baseball by attending the Toledo Mud Hens game on Wednesday night, May 17. Conference sessions will begin in the morning on Thursday, so plan to arrive on Wednesday for a chance to spend more time with your colleagues while enjoying America’s favorite pastime.
Conference registration is only $100.00 and includes two days’ worth of sessions, plus lunch on Thursday and brunch on Friday. Registration and payment is available via by clicking "Shop" above.

Session topics include: Lessons learned via crisis, the student worker staffing dilemma, combining testing and accommodated services, and College Credit Plus. We also have a professional development track with sessions on communication strategies, stress management, FERPA and more. There will be round-table discussions and a virtual viewing of "How to Catch a Cheat" from last year’s NCTA conference.
We look forward to another year of learning, growing and networking with our Great Lakes testing professional colleagues. If you have any questions, please contact Cindy Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jan Gonzalez at email@example.com. See you there!
