Session Proposal

Presenters are expected to facilitate an interactive session during the allotted time of 60 minutes and are intended for an audience typically of 30-50 people. Proposals should include a description of the topic and details on how the presenter will make this session a “hands-on” experience for attendees.

In addition to wanting basic information, we will need the following information:

  • Session Title (limit 20 words)
  • Which category best describes your session? 
    • [Critical Skills] - these sessions are meant to provide participates with concrete leadership skills through scenarios, lessons, practices and discussions. Examples of such sessions based on previous years' themes are: Engaging your followers/community, Tips and Tricks for Fundraising, and Tough Decisions 101
.
    • [Social Bonds] - these sessions are meant to work on areas which promote social connections with others that build leadership capabilities.
    • [Global Awareness] - these sessions are meant to discuss issues of importance to our global society and can be more informational and/or educational.  The presenter(s) is a scholar or is very experienced in the field of the hot topic that he/she will be presenting. The purpose of this type of sessions is meant for participants to take away some concrete information, and/or to help them lead and advocate for changes in this particular topic. Examples of previous year's sessions are: climate change, humanitarianism, terrorism, gender, elections, civil rights.
  • Session Description:
  • How will you guarantee audience participation during your proposed session?

We look forward to receiving your session proposal form by March 1st!
