Call for Session Proposals and Speaker / Topic Ideas

We are seeking your input and ideas on content (or speakers) you’d like to see during this year’s conference or sessions you’d be interested in presenting.

Please submit if you have a session / speaker idea or wish to lead a session or Ted-Style talk. Ideas and session proposals will be accepted until July 18, 2021.  Please note we are accepting the following session formats:

  • Traditional educational sessions. These sessions will be 60 minute in length, including time for interaction and questions. Sessions will be capped at 50 participants and will use Zoom meetings. 
  • “Ted-Style" recorded talks. Presenters would prepare and record a short (5-10 minute) video. These videos will be released for viewing during the week before the conference. Presenters would be asked to them lead an informal 30-minute Q&A and discussion session related to the topic during the conference week.

If you have an idea but would like feedback from the conference educational content subcommittee, you can also feel free to email your idea to Betsy Braid at

If you have a session that you feel needs more than 60 minutes, please make note in your session description. We will consider a small number of sessions that are longer than 60 minutes. However, we do not want any sessions to exceed 90 minutes.
