Call for Presentation Proposals

Submission Deadline: June 4, 2024

We look forward to your submissions! Presentations that allow students to take the lead, and those that demonstrate collaboration between institutions and professions are highly valued. We are looking for submissions that are engaging and encourage audience participation. We hope for both “bread-and butter” submissions that build the foundation for high-quality teaching, as well as innovative and creative submissions. We also are looking forward to submissions that are geared toward coordinators and other vital team members.

  2. Do not submit the same proposal in more than one category.
  3. Acknowledgment of receipt of submissions will be emailed automatically after you complete your submission.
  4. ALL PRESENTERS MUST PAY THE REGISTRATION FEE. In addition, no honoraria or travel expense reimbursement will be provided for any presenter submitting through the call for presentations.
