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.


PRESENTER REGISTRATION

All presenters will be required to be registered for the conference. Approved presenters will receive a $100 discount off of the “early bird” registration cost ($395), reducing the cost of registration for presenters to just $295.

Please note: Wisconsin residents and ARCH paid members, whether or not they are presenters, are already entitled to a discounted registration rate of $295. Only one discount per registrant will be permitted.

An approved presenter’s registration must be completed and paid for by June 1, 2022 for the presenter’s session to be included in the conference. The registration fee will not be waived for presenters. In addition, hotel, travel, per diem, and other associated costs are the responsibility of each presenter.


REVIEW PROCESS

All completed proposals will be reviewed by the Conference Planning Committee using the following criteria:

  • Practical applicability to the conference theme Reimagine Respite.
  • Usefulness of the information, skills, and/or ideas for the intended audience
  • Contributions to new or innovative practices
  • Intent to stimulate active engagement of participants
  • Presenter’s qualifications and experience
  • Use of instructional aids

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.

PRESENTATION FORMATS

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.

AV EQUIPMENT

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. Contact Lisa Schneider with the Respite Care Association of Wisconsin at lschneider@respitecarewi.org if you have questions or additional requests.
