Welcome to ACE

The ACE 2017 conference committee is excited to announce the call for professional development breakout session proposals aimed at renewing and refreshing our work, skills, and professional connections.

Proposals are due December 15, 2016. Presenters will be notified in February 2017. Click here for details and to submit proposals.

Proposals should align with one of five themes:

  • Refine (new and improved developments, advances, technologies)
  • Reinforce (strategies, tactics, technologies that emphasize or strengthen the message)
  • Re-energize (stimulating creativity, productivity)
  • Review (getting back to basics; fundamentals)
  • Repurpose (different channels for products, messages; value-added communications)
In addition to basic session and presenter information, the proposal form asks you to indicate:
  • Audience level (beginner, advanced, or mixed)
  • Session type (lightning, sharing, how-to, application, professional development poster)
  • Length (5, 15, 45, or 90 minute)

Note to Learning Communities: You do not need to submit proposals for regular business meetings. Proposals for extended meetings or invited sessions must be submitted using this form and will go through the same review process. Proposals for pre- or post-conference workshops should be submitted through the ACE 2017 workshop proposal form by December 15.

We look forward to receiving and reviewing your breakout session proposals for ACE 2017: Renewal in New Orleans!
