Call for proposals

Speak at A’19

We’re planning an incredible education program for A’19, and we’d love your help. If you’re a subject matter expert with a great concept for an education session, we invite you to submit a proposal.


What to expect

This year, we’re hosting two separate calls for proposals, one for sessions, which closes August 1, and one for workshops, which closes October 30.

During the first round of review, we’ll evaluate how well proposals reflect emerging trends, new ideas, engaging learning, and knowledge level in support of our curricular framework.

Proposals that advance to the second round will be evaluated for learner outcomes, speaker expertise, attendee value, and 2018 speaker scores, where applicable.

We’ll provide feedback on every proposal, accepted or not, by December 3.
