Professional development is a core component of the Conference and includes in-depth seminars, workshops, and discussions that offer professional and peer insight. We seek to offer sessions that appeal to all attendees and welcome all ideas—whether it’s a fully developed session, the name of someone that has inspired you, a skill that needs to be refreshed, or simply an issue of interest.

Feel free to complete as little or as much of the information requested below.

Looking to suggest a specific speaker, not a session or topic? Use this form!

This form is open year-round. Nominations received by January 16, 2020 will be considered for the 2020 Conference.

Note: Proposals from previous years are kept on file for future consideration. If you submitted a proposal within the past 5 years, there’s not need to submit one again. Contact [email protected] to confirm that your previous proposal is on file.
