Housing Action Illinois 2019 Housing Matters! Conference
October 24-25, 2019 in Bloomington, Illinois
Our request for proposals will end on April 30, 2019.
Housing Action Illinois invites you to submit proposals for our 2019 conference. We are particularly interested in sessions that have clear suggestions for action, outline practical strategies, or share paths for implementing ideas. You do not need to be a Housing Action Illinois member to be a presenter. We will consider proposals in these topic areas:
• Ending Homelessness
• Public Policy Advocacy
• Housing Counseling
• Affordable Housing Development
• Leadership and Professional Development
Our participants come from everywhere in Illinois, and we want all of our workshops to be applicable statewide, although you can include a regional focus.
If you have recommendations for potential session topics but do not have a presenter in mind, please provide your suggestions in the "Session Description" section below.
SESSION FORMAT: While our typical session setup is a straightforward presentation or discussion panel, we welcome creative formats that promote peer engagement and hands-on workshops. Most sessions will run for 75 minutes. All sessions should allocate time for Q&A.
DEADLINE: Submit your proposal by Monday, April 30.
CONTACT: If you have questions, please email Kristin Ginger at firstname.lastname@example.org
