2022 ACE Conference

Reimagined: ACE and All That Jazz

Professional Development Call for Proposals

ACE is now accepting proposals for professional development presentations at the 2022 annual conference. We seek practical professional development for our members from the many disciplines that make up our jobs.

The conference will include some virtual participation options. However, we ask that all who submit proposals be willing to present in person in Kansas City. The selection committee will place a premium on interactivity and dynamic presentation of either 30 to 45 minutes or three-hour pre or post conference workshops.

The committee also encourages the inclusion of new voices. Proposals from experienced ACE members who seek to present again this year will be deemed more competitive if the veteran teams with a “mentee,” debut presenter, or someone who has seldom presented.

Also, back this year are the lightning round presentations. These three-to-five minute sessions are designed to present a series of focused, succinct, and practical tips in rapid succession from a series of presenters.

In keeping with the conference theme of “Reimagined: ACE and All That Jazz,” the committee seeks proposals that offer insights on new ways of communicating in the post-COVID-19 world.

Instructions: Complete and submit the form to propose a professional development breakout session for the ACE 2022 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 February 25, 2022. The ACE 2022 Conference Committee will review proposals and make notifications of acceptance the week of March 14, 2022.

Review process: The ACE 2022 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 April 2022.

Click here to make your submission. Thanks for taking the initiative to help your fellow ACE members.
