NYSSBA is pleased to issue a Call for Presentations for our 98th Annual Convention and Education Expo to be held at the Conference Center at Lake Placid in Lake Placid, New York, Oct. 12-14, 2017.
Deadline: January 27, 2017
This is your opportunity to share your knowledge and expertise with more than 2,000 school board members and education leaders across New York State.
In crafting your presentation proposal, please keep in mind our conference theme, Taking Education to New Heights, as well as the needs, interests and issues of concern to school board members across New York State. Proposals are ranked and scored by a separate committee. Please be certain that your topic or program is clearly written with precise learning objectives. Sometimes learning objectives are not clearly understood and as a result the proposal does not advance. Have a neutral and trusted colleague read your proposal for feedback prior to submission. Program submissions should be substantive with key principles, practices, and programming elements which can easily be adapted. Make certain that your proposal is clear; avoid heavy theoretical components and ambiguity. Finally, this is a 60-minute presentation which includes question and answer, so be realistic as to how much you can cover; don’t overpromise.
In this year’s Call for Presentations, we’re looking for sessions that will increase attendee engagement. Here are some suggestions:
