Annual Meeting & Expo - Call For Sessions

The 2019 Call for Sessions is Now Closed.


Proposal Submission Guidelines

Proposals that are incomplete or submitted late cannot be considered for review; we recommend reviewing the proposal components and drafting your responses in advance. In addition:  

  • An organization or individual may submit a maximum of two (2) proposals; all submissions by different individuals from the same organization count towards this limit.
  • The person listed as the proposal submitter must be a speaker in the session; speaker changes cannot be accepted once a proposal is submitted.
  • Content changes cannot be made to a proposal or additional information included once it is has been submitted.
  • Proposals cannot be accepted once the submission site closes; no deadline extensions or exceptions will be granted.

Evaluation Criteria

A peer review committee of LeadingAge members, experts in the field and association staff will review all proposal submissions using the following criteria:

  • Overall quality, clarity and depth of session content
  • Relevance of topic and applicability of concepts to aging services providers
  • Presentation delivery and/or education methods that enhance the learning experience
  • Experience and knowledge level of speakers as well as diversity of perspectives represented

Please Note: LeadingAge encourages the inclusion of elders, especially in sessions where the content touches on the resident experience.

The 2020 Call for Sessions will open September 2019.
