 2023 ACE Conference Sessions Call for Proposals

ACE is now accepting proposals for professional development presentations at the 2023 annual conference. We seek practical professional development for our members from the many disciplines that make up our jobs.

Instructions. Complete and submit the form to propose a professional development breakout session for the ACE 2023 conference. Required fields are indicated by an asterisk (*). The individual listed as the primary contact will receive a confirmation email and all correspondence regarding the session.
Timeline. The proposal submission deadline is Monday, December 5, 2022. The ACE 2022 Conference Committee will review proposals and make notifications of acceptance the week of January 30, 2023.
Review process. The ACE 2023 Conference Committee will review all session proposals and may recommend changes (e.g., combining sessions, different length). Final acceptance and scheduling is at the discretion of the committee, dependent on conference goals and schedule availability. No changes to topics and/or descriptions will be accepted after the submission deadline.
The following are important items to note:
· Proposals for invited sessions must also be submitted using the form and will go through the same review process.
· Breakout session presenters must register for the conference. The only exception is for invited presenters who only attend the conference for their session. Registration will be available in March 2023.
