Call for Workshops: Present at our 2018 Annual Convention in Denver

The Partnership is excited about the 2018 Annual Convention being held August 28-31 in Denver, Colorado, at the Sheraton Downtown Denver Hotel. And to provide our colleagues with the best convention possible, we are currently accepting workshop proposals for consideration. Before submitting a workshop, please note the following:
  • The Partnership is unable to cover presenter travel.
  • All presenters who are also attending the convention are required to pay published convention registration fees.
  • Presenters are responsible for bringing their own laptops, as the Partnership is unable to provide them to presenters.

Still interested in submitting a workshop, click here. To view submission questions before completing the online form, click here. Please note the PDF form is only for review and the Partnership is only accepting online submissions.

Based on our long history of peer-to-peer training, the Partnership has secured a number of CAA professionals and national network partners to provide training. However, we also welcome proposals from local Community Action Agencies, State and Regional Associations, national partners and nonprofit experts.

The Partnership is particularly interested in sessions covering the following topics:
* Data Integration
* Data Analysis
* Emerging Leader Development
* Leadership Development
* Fundraising
* Implementing Evidence Based Programs
* Human Resources
* Succession Planning
* Opioid Crisis
* Re-Entry
The Partnership is looking for presenters from across the nation and at varying levels within and outside of Community Action to share their expertise. Panel presentations are welcome. Consider submitting a workshop or encouraging someone you know to do so today! Please also share with appropriate partner organizations and subject matter experts.
Concerned about submitted a workshop because it will be your first time presenting? Have a specific innovation you'd like to share briefly? Consider submitting w workshop to be a part of the Ignite presentation model where each speaker gets 5 minutes and must use 20 slides with each slide advancing automatically after 15 seconds.
Please fill out the online form here with information about your workshop.
 Submissions Due By April 6, 2018.
