Present like a Rock STAR

I can’t tell you how many people I speak to that have a ton of great information to share, but come up with one excuse or another not to bother submitting any proposals to the various state conferences.  Well, let me tell you something…  You’ve got experience, you’ve got ideas, and you’ve got knowledge that would be valuable to other people.  Why not take the next step and share it with other educators?As I do every year, I’ve aggregated together a list of state conferences along with when their proposal dates open and/or close.  I didn’t realize just how late in the year I was doing it this year and a few of them have closed already.  So don’t waste any time!  If you’d like to participate in any of these conferences, JUMP at the opportunities and apply immediately (if not sooner).One thing to remember, particularly if you’re an East coast resident.  You aren’t restricted to just your state.  Apply to present in a neighboring state and see how they run things across the border!  More thank likely, there’s several conferences within driving distance that you could be presenting at.  Why not apply to them all and see what happens!

And of course the big momma, which happens to be in Washington DC next year…

Did I miss any? If so, leave a comment with the info!

    As program chair of the ICE (Illinois conference) we’d love to get proposals from all over that highlight how you are “Connecting to the World of Tomorrow”. Thanks Steve for putting out our link. General sessions are due Oct 1st, but if you are would prefer to do a poster session, those aren’t due until Nov 1st.
