National Planning Committee


The IMPACT National Conference is planned by volunteers who apply to be a part of the behind-the-scenes action. Conference logistics and promotions are primarily carried out each year by the National Conference Planning Committee, with additional support by the host campus and the IMPACT Board of Directors.

Subcommittees are the heart of planning for the conference, and subcommittee members pull a lot of the planning weight. We are looking for members of many different subcommittees, each with different levels of involvement and commitment.

  • Outreach Committee
  • Sponsorship Committee
  • Keynote Speakers/Pre-Conference Institute Committee
  • Workshops Committee
  • Pre-Conference Institute & Social Events


  •  Contribute to the planning of the IMPACT Conference in your respective role/committee
  • Each subcommittee will vary in their “busy” times, but it will be common to have at least a bi-weekly call with your subcommittee
  • Respond to all correspondence in a timely manner and consistently communicate project progress through email and conference call attendance
  • Remain open, flexible, and enthusiastic about the dynamic nature of this event
  • Seek out opportunities to enrich the conference agenda and approach tasks creatively
  • Openly and honestly share any personal or professional challenges experienced as part of this committee
  • Attend the Conference (arrive early for planning if able)

Below you’ll find a link to the planning committee application and description of each committee. Applications are due by Friday, August 19 at 5pm.
