Last Call for Proposals

Tuesday, 20 October 2015 00:00

Calling all presenters! The call for proposals for the NAA Convention 2016, March 20 – 23 in Orlando, Florida, is open until October 26, 2015.

Convention is a great opportunity for members of the afterschool and education communities to share what you're doing well, even if it's your first time presenting at a conference.

We're looking for the best in afterschool to present at Convention! One of our goals for Convention is to highlight the best in programming, leadership, management, fundraising, partnership building, innovation, and more to highlight on a national stage.

We hosted a webinar on July 22 about the call for proposals process, the kind of content we're looking for, and other proposal tips. Watch the recording and download the slides.

Download our proposal template to get a head start on your proposal. It will walk you through all questions to help you get ready to submit your Session Proposal Submission Form!
