CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS FOR THE 2022 NATIONAL LIFESPAN RESPITE CONFERENCE IS NOW CLOSED!
IF YOU SUBMITTED A PROPOSAL, WE WILL MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO NOTIFY YOU BY MAY 1, 2022.
All completed proposals will be reviewed by the Conference Planning Committee using the following criteria:
We reserve the right to request modifications to a proposal before a final decision is made. We also reserve the right to combine presentations with similar topics in one session. Presenters will be notified in advance if this should occur.
The conference will offer 60-minute time slots for breakout sessions. Presenters are encouraged to incorporate the Reimagine Respite theme, targeting one of the five topic areas and/or the Lifespan Respite Tracks. Each presentation should include at least three learning objectives.
Please think of creative ways to inform and energize the audience. Presenters are welcomed and encouraged to develop interactive sessions that engage participants in discussion, networking, and an open exchange of ideas. You are encouraged to develop a proposal alone or with one or two other speakers on a related topic. The conference review committee retains the right to combine presentations with others under similar topics. Presenters will be notified in advance if this occurs.
Breakout rooms will be set up “theatre” style or with round tables to accommodate 35-75 participants. If your proposed session or presentation requires a different space set up, the request must be indicated on the application form. We will not be able to guarantee your preferred arrangement, but we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
All breakout sessions will include a PowerPoint package with a podium with laptop computer, LCD projector and screen. Internet may be available. A podium microphone may be provided depending on the size of the room and the acoustics. Presenters will be responsible for costs associated with any additional equipment or services required.
