We are seeking current MCF members, representing diverse backgrounds, roles, responsibilities, and experiences as lead presenters of conference breakout (workshop) sessions. We recognize that MCF members have the expertise and innovative spirit to assertively propel our sector forward. MCF values all of the individuals who comprise the wide ranging member organizations, and in order to best create a space for all voices, we strongly encourage everyone to consider what they bring to the table that enhances everyone’s learning and engagement.

We strongly encourage submissions representing collaboration with other MCF Members, community partners, and/or subject-matter experts.

Workshop breakout sessions will attract between 30-50 participants and last 90 minutes in duration.

Presenters are expected to be inclusive of diversity – particularly racial/ethnic, gender, sexual orientation, ability and geography – as well as, be engaging and thoughtful about incorporating various adult learning styles.
