Member QuickTalk | Creating a Winning Annual Conference Proposal

If you are a young professional, new to conference proposals, or just want some inspiration as you’re crafting your proposal, join us to explore tips and resources to prepare a successful proposal to the EDUCAUSE Annual Conference. This session will navigate you through the components of a conference proposal, differentiate between the types of tracks and sessions, and explore how to engage with EDUCAUSE for further preparation.

You’ll hear from past conference presenters, EDUCAUSE staff, and the 2023 EDUCAUSE Program Committee in this primarily informational session, and will have opportunities to ask questions throughout the event. To brainstorm presentation topic ideas with your peers, make sure to subscribe to the Young Professionals Community Group (YPCG) and attend the YPCG Conference Proposal Open House.

This session is hosted by the Young Professionals Advisory Committee.
