All proposals MUST be submitted no later than Monday, November 1st. Because we are hosting a virtual conference this year, we need information well in advance of the event.
To submit a proposal, complete this online form. Please note that all information must be entered at one time into this Google form. You cannot save it and come back later to finish. A helpful tip is to type out your narrative answers in a Word document and paste them into the form. If you have submitted a proposal in the past, we have added a few questions and changes this year. To view a sample of how the information you provide will be presented at our conference, please view our 2021 Agenda document. For questions or help, contact Jessica at email@example.com.
