APA 2014: Call for Session Proposals Now Open

The American Planning Association is now accepting conference session proposals for its 2014 National Conference, taking place April 26-30, 2014 in Atlanta, Ga.

Proposals must be submitted online by August 20, 2013. For more information and to submit a proposal, go to http://planning.org/conference/proposals.htm.

More details from APA’s website:

APA members are invited to propose a complete session. The session proposer has full control of the speakers and the session topic. If selected, you will be responsible for confirming speakers, creating the content of the session, assigning a session organizer, and ensuring that the session is appropriately implemented.

Sessions are 75 minutes in length and take place starting Saturday through Wednesday.

One-half of the conference program is devoted to proposals submitted by volunteers. The other half of the program comprises symposia, training workshops, division sessions, Local Host Committee sessions, and special APA research and policy initiatives. The competition for the volunteer sessions/general submissions is heavy, and approximately one in three proposals is selected.
