Please review the Session Proposal Requirements carefully before beginning the submission process.

Session Proposal Requirements

Submit your session proposal using our Session Proposal Form. You must complete the form in one session, so make sure you have all the following required information ready to enter. If you leave the platform and come back later, you will have to start over.

Submit Your Proposal

Descriptive Summary

In 75 words or less, state the purpose of the session and summarize what attendees will take away from the session. The summary paragraph will be used to help us market the session. 

Session Outline 

A separate document for upload that shows in outline format the proposed content of the session is required. Please provide enough detail to allow us to understand the scope and content of the presentation. If the session is selected, we may ask you to add additional details to the outline to meet state requirements for continuing education approval.

Learning Objectives

Provide three learning objectives that summarize what attendees will be able to do with the knowledge they obtain in the session or how it will enable them to do their jobs better.


Indicate the style of the presentation—that is, lecture-style presentation, interactive panel discussion, or another format.

Proposed Time Frame

Our program can accommodate a variety of presentation lengths. Please indicate what you think is an appropriate amount of time to adequately cover the topic.

Target Audience

Indicate the target audience for your presentation based on the skill level and job type of the attendee.

Speaker Information

Provide name, title, and company of proposed speakers, a short biography (in a separate document for upload), and contact information for the speaker proposing the session (the primary speaker). If more than two speakers are being proposed, we ask that you refrain from actually inviting additional speakers until your session is approved.
