May I submit more than one proposal?
Yes, An individual presenter may submit multiple proposals to present. Additionally, a presenter may submit both as an individual and in collaboration with colleagues. Please note that when submitting with a team of presenters, the proposal team will communicate with the Contact Presenter.
Must I be a current member of NADE to submit a proposal?
No, you do not have to be a current member to submit a proposal, but now is a great time to renew.
If your membership is not current, you may renew your membership here, or you may renew your membership with your conference registration. New members may also purchase a membership with their conference registration.
NADE is raising its membership rates after a long, long time, but we want to give current and former members a chance to save some money and get an extended membership. Here’s how:
Do not delay--renew today. Remember, this is only for current and former members.
Membership rates are $75 beginning November 1, 2016!
Must I be registered to present?
Yes. Only those registered for the conference may actually present an institute/session. All presenters must register and pay fees for the conference, or the institute/session will be cancelled.
When can I expect to know if my presentation has been selected?
The deadline for submissions is September 15, 2016. Contact Presenters should expect to be contacted near October 1, 2016 (but not later than October 15), by email or telephone.
Update: The conference planning team aims to meet the October 15 deadline of notifying all presenters that their proposal has been (a) accepted exactly as they submitted it, (b) accepted on the condition that it can be revised to fit another format or time structure, (c) added to a list of alternate presentations that will replace canceled presentations, or (d) rejected because it falls short of the expectations for this conference.
I submitted a proposal to present a 75-minute session. Why am I being asked to revise my presentation to a 50-minute session?
The overwhelming response to the call for proposals resulted in a abundance of rich, engaging, and intriguing presentations. We received more high-quality proposals than we had planned to select. Therefore, we accepted the challenge to create additional opportunities for colleagues to share their research, practices, and insights on developmental education. We modified session times to allow a greater number of sessions to be presented.
