Call for Proposal Info
The time limit of 45 minutes starts immediately upon arriving at the logon page after clicking on either of the proposal links below.
Make sure to have all the information required on the online proposal form before you get started. We encourage those planning to submit a proposal to use the Proposal Draft Template (see below) to generate their proposal text before starting the online submission process. Large pieces of text can then be copied and pasted into the online form. This will help submitters stay under the time limit of 45 minutes.
Tip 1: Writing Your Presentation Objectives
What will attendees get out of your presentation? What are their takeaways? (At the end of this session, attendees will...)
Tip 2: Connecting to the Conference Theme
How does your presentation relate to the METC theme of Motivate, Engage, Transform, Connect?
Tip 3: Writing the Presentation Description
Use the presentation goals as a base to write a short (70 word maximum) description. Incorporate text from the connection(s) to the conference theme.
Tip 4: Writing the Presentation Title
A presentation title needs to catch the reader's eye and be a short and concise representation of the description. A title that is less than 10 words is preferred.
Tip 5: Attending to Details
Proposal Draft Template
Use this template to create and finalize your proposal. The text of the proposal can then be copied and pasted into the online form.
