The Proposal Process - Step-by-Step

Most programs and events require a proposal submission. However, not all "Call for Programs" are alike. As you conceptualize your proposal, we encourage you to carefully review the submission guidelines, even if you've presented at a NAEP program or event recently.

Knowing what to expect will help make the submission process flow smoothly. Once you've reviewed the submission guidelines, your next step will be to submit an abstract to be considered for a presentation at an NAEP program or event.

Program Proposals are reviewed by the Program Committee. If your proposal is well thought out and pertinent to the subject matter of the conference, then your chances of being selected are great.

To ensure your success, the information below was designed to strengthen both your proposal and presentation if selected.
