Quick Shops: 1 hour sessions aimed at providing a quick or narrow overview of tools and techniques.  Specifically we are looking for Quick Shops focused on operational aspects (e.g. social media policies, employee performance tools, designing a workshop flyer, etc.) or specific aspects of a program management or design (e.g intake forms, business outreach scripts, etc.)
Workshops: 75 minute traditional workshops that enable attendees to take a deep dive into a specific issue or topic; typically includes interactive presentations, hands on learning and/or panel discussions.

Both Workshops and Quick Shops must:

- Contain clearly stated, practical learning objectives
- Contain content that is reflective of the session description;  Note: We reserve the right to modify the descriptions that will be printed in conference materials; and may combine accepted proposals on a same topic  and ask you to co-present with another organization; and will inform the presenters when doing so.  Additionally, we reserve the right to 
- Utilize knowledgable presenters
