PAR is now accepting Speaker Proposals for the 2020 Solutions Conference! This year's conference will be held from Monday, October 19 through Wednesday, October 21. While we hope to hold our event in person at the Harrisburg Hilton, PAR will shift the Solutions Conference to a virtual event if it is not safe to meet in person. 
About the Conference: The 2020 Solutions Conference is the only conference of its kind in Pennsylvania. Every year, the Solutions Conference brings together outstanding presenters, policymakers, state officials and experts in the Intellectual Disability/Autism field to provide information, engage in Q&A sessions, and participate in public forums.  
What We're Looking For: PAR is looking for solutions-focused sessions for its 2020 Solutions Conference. Our attendees most enjoy learning from sessions that are timely, information-rich, and focused on success stories with data-proven outcomes. This is an opportunity to share your research, best practices, resources and emerging trends in areas ranging from education, employment, health, advocacy, positive behavior supports and more!
Returning Speakers: If you have spoken at a recent conference, please refrain from repeating content - our attendees notice! Instead, feel free to propose a session that is a continuation or an update from the last time you spoke.
Hints & Tips: Click here to download a printable version of the Speaker Proposal Form to prepare your information before entering it through our online form. Proposals must be clearly defined, creative, and specifically geared towards our participants. Panels should be limited to four or fewer presenters.
Deadline: Conference proposals are due by Friday, July 31. We look forward to learning about what you have to offer! Please contact Lauren Quigley at with any questions.
