2021 CIAA Education Day & Career Expo


CIAA Education Day
CIAA Education Day, one of the conference’s most popular events during the CIAA Basketball Tournament, has reached more than 6,000 students. Attendees will be able to virtually meet with college recruiters from Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Virginia to learn tips to prepare for college as well as get the inside track on the collegiate experience.
The 2021 CIAA Education Day will operate two High School Programs (HSP) – one for Baltimore city and surrounding county schools on Tuesday, February 23rd, and another for other state schools on Wednesday, February 24th. The events will kick off with an opening session that includes tournament leadership and sponsor welcome and remarks, student and teacher recognitions, and a panel discussion and/or inspirational speaker.

In addition to the scheduled program, we will have special presentations honoring students with a minimum 4.0 grade point average and outstanding high school educators.  At the conclusion of the event, attendees will have the opportunity to visit the various CIAA institution and educational vendor booths via a virtual platform. 
These programs are free and open to high school juniors and seniors and school representatives/chaperones.


Career Expo
The 2021 CIAA Career Expo will be held virtually Thursday, February 25, from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.  The CIAA Career Expo is designed to provide organizations the opportunity to meet recent graduates, current students from the CIAA member-schools and other universities, career seekers, and career switchers and recruit for available positions.  The CIAA not only has a rich and storied tradition in intercollegiate athletics but has an equally extensive list of alumni who have gone on to make tremendous strides in many different professions.
Employers attend the CIAA Career Expo to increase visibility, illustrate the benefits of employment within their organization, and provide information regarding internships, full-time employment, and post-graduate educational opportunities. For employers, we have a pool of aspiring graduating and recent college graduates, career seekers, and career switchers eager for advancing their futures. For attendees, you can expect a diverse group of recruiters with a myriad of opportunities awaiting potential employees.
So register today to grow your brand and grow your future.
