Proposals are being accepted for ninety-minute workshop sessions.

We suggest you write your proposal in a word processing program and then paste each response into the submission form on the following pages. This will mitigate the chance of data loss and you will have a copy of your submission (no copy of your submission is otherwise available). To begin submitting a proposal, please be sure you have the following information (listed below), then scroll to the bottom of this page, respond to the three statements, then click "Next" to access the pages where you will paste in your proposal.

There is a maximum of four presenters per workshop, including a moderator, two proposals per presenter. The deadline for proposals is May 13, 2019. AFCC is unable to guarantee consideration of incomplete proposals or those submitted after the deadline. AFCC offers a reduced registration rate for conference presenters and is unable to reimburse for travel, lodging, and related expenses. Please direct any questions to Nicole Ellickson at 608-664-3750 or

AFCC strives to accept proposals from as many presenters as possible while also limiting presentations to one per person. This is not always possible; however, presenters submitting multiple proposals with different co-presenters often results in the rejection of one of the proposals, and therefore the co-presenters.

You will be notified whether your proposal has been accepted by late June 2019.
