NLGJA: The Association of LGBTQ Journalists 2020 National Convention Session Proposal Form
NLGJA: The Association of LGBTQ Journalists plans to provide over 30 workshop opportunities to over 450 conference attendees at its 2020 National Convention in Chicago. Workshop proposals are an integral step in the process the conference planning committee and national office staff take to provide the most up-to-date and relevant workshops to all of our convention attendees.
Convention breakout sessions average 60 minutes long. Time adjustments can be made in exceptional circumstances.
Please be prepared to provide the contact information for a presentation coordinator, an abstract (250 words or less), educational goals for the presentation and any confirmed speakers. NLGJA: The Association of LGBTQ Journalists has found that with the allotted time and subject complexity, workshops and plenaries can include no more than three panelists in addition to a moderator.
If your presentation proposal is accepted, NLGJA: The Association of LGBTQ Journalists will contact you in early Spring to confirm speakers, their bios, head shots and other requirements for the session. NLGJA: The Association of LGBTQ Journalists reserves the right to combine panels, assign speakers or affix sponsorships and will inform you as such as soon as possible.
The deadline to submit a proposal has been extended to January 23.
