Hal Vincent, a lecturer in Elon University's School of Communications and the faculty director of Live Oak Communications, was invited to present on March 18 at the American Academy of Advertising’s 2016 conference in Seattle.

During a panel discussion, titled Creating Unique Experiential Opportunities: The Case for Student-Led Ad Agencies,” Vincent facilitated a conversation highlighting the best practices for agency operations and student mentoring and advising for teachers, researchers and administrators. The session’s topics revolved around operational models, administrative considerations, student advising, and engaged learning opportunities to ensure student post-graduation success.

In addition to Vincent, other panel members hailed from Brigham Young University, University of Alabama, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, University of Oregon and Winthrop University.

“Live Oak Communications, with nearly 10 years of operation, is a recognized leader in providing engaged and experiential learning through a student-run agency model,” Vincent said. “It’s a pleasure to share and learn from other faculty and schools who invest so much effort to create student success.”

This was the third academic conference Vincent has been invited to in the past year to share research and experiences from Live Oak Communications.
