2018-19 Adviser Forum West has ended
Welcome to Los Angeles, and to 2018 Forum West!
**Reminders: Please bring a notebook and pen to every session, and wear your CAC name badge at all times**

Dear CAC family,
Welcome to my home state of California and our Adviser Forum West! We are thrilled to have you here in the City of Angels and are grateful to our host chapter, the awesome USC Corps! Fight on!

Our theme this year goes to the heart of CAC’s mission -- Advancing Opportunity. The goal over the next few days is to recommit ourselves to advancing opportunity in various ways. We hope you will discover best practices from your peers, engage with the research, reflect on your journey and what may lie ahead by interacting with the alumni panel and industry workshops, and be inspired by our guest speakers whose stories capture in powerful ways the journey to advancing opportunity.

On behalf of our national team and Board of Directors, we are grateful for the work that each of you — 716 advisers serving 210,000 students in 16 states across the country — do every day. We continue to build a national movement at a critical time in our nation’s history. Let us commit to ensuring every student hears those four key words, “I believe in you” and, together, we advance opportunity.

It is an honor to serve with you!

Limited Capacity seats available

Students are not empty beings needing to be filled with college knowledge. They are more like acorns…already possessing the potential to grow into something great but needing the proper elements to do so. We often work with students who believe college isn't for them and that they do not possess the grades, skills, or abilities to pursue higher education. How do we help these students see themselves in college and believe in themselves the way we do? Asset-based advising is a great tool for working with students who hold negative self-beliefs. Come learn about best practices for tapping into a student's full potential via advising, presenting various options for post-secondary education, and backwards-planning strategies.
