While our programs typically do not provide CEUs, we encourage the use of adult-learning methods and interactive components (Q&A; case studies; group discussion, polling, etc.) in addition to lecture/slides to facilitate content acquisition and application by the audience/attendees.

To successfully submit a proposal, you will need to provide the following:

  • Photo: this will be used in marketing materials (please upload a high-rez photo of your head and shoulders).
  • Presentation Title and Description: this will be used in marketing materials to describe what the session will be about and learning outcomes - what attendees can take away from the session.
  • Audio-Visual Needs: for digitally delivered programs (webinars), we will provide the streaming/recording platform (Zoom), you will need to provide a microphone, camera and internet-connected device; for in-person programs, we will provide at a minimum a microphone; laptop and projector upon request, please indicate any additional needs on the form.
