We are currently accepting proposals from speakers, thought leaders and collaborators for workshops, presentations and panel discussions on how to actively and effectively engage with our communities to address unmet needs, to challenge the status quo, and to build on integrated approaches that better our communities.
We want to encourage sessions that showcase best practices for how to actively and effectively create communities where we all belong, build on approaches that make our communities more welcoming, and grow partnerships that can help us make these changes happen everywhere. This year, we are looking for session proposals that:
- Are educational in nature, with clear learning objectives
- Attract and serve a diverse audience
- Creatively engage attendees
- Demonstrate best practices for "inspiring possibilities", especially for those who identify as having an intellectual/developmental disability.
We strongly encourage self-advocates, family members, support organizations, and other social justice groups?to submit proposals. We also encourage submissions from Indigenous, racialized and LGBTQ2S+ speakers of all abilities. Everyone has something to contribute!
The deadline to submit your proposal is 5 pm EST Friday, April 29, 2022.
We have changed our submission process this year. Please review the new proposal guideline here before submitting your proposal. If you would like to see the survey questions in advance of starting your online submission, here is a document with all of the questions listed.
Please note that only submissions entered through our online survey here will be reviewed by the CLO Inspiring Possibilities AGM & Conference 2022 Committee.
If you have any questions regarding your proposal submission and/or you require assistance with this process, please contact Aislinn DeRoches at email@example.com.
