Georgia's 2017 Adult Education Fall Conference - Call for Proposals

Subject:   Call for Session Proposals: Georgia’s 2017 Adult Education Fall Conference

Attention Potential Presenters,

Georgia’s Office of Adult Education is accepting proposals for its 2017 Adult Education Fall Conference. The conference will be held at the Renaissance Atlanta Waverly Hotel & Convention Center and is scheduled to begin Tuesday, September 26 and end Thursday, September 28, 2017. The University of Georgia provides support to the Conference Planning Committee by collecting and reviewing all proposal submissions. Guidance is then provided to help the committee determine which sessions will best support the professional development needs of the state’s adult educators, program leaders and staff. If you are interested in submitting a session proposal(s) for consideration, please continue to read for details regarding the submission process and session expectations.  

Sessions are to be designed to accommodate up to fifty participants and last between two and two and a half hours. The exact duration of a session will be communicated once the schedule for the event is finalized. Presenters will be scheduled to deliver their session twice during the conference and arrange their own travel.

The Office of Adult Education will provide the following to conference presenters:

  • a flat consultant fee of $1000.00 for a session delivered twice, or $500.00 for a session delivered once,
  • reimbursement for travel and lodging in accordance to State of Georgia travel regulations,
  • per diem for meals not offered at the conference,
  • session rooms equipped with a PC laptop, projector, and a flipchart with markers.

Please note, consultant fees cannot be awarded to Georgia Adult Education grantees or to publishers who are scheduled to present.

In addition to the above, the University of Georgia will coordinate with presenters and have copies of session materials made and delivered to the conference facility. This relieves the need for presenters to travel with their session handouts or arrange to have handouts shipped.

If you are interested in submitting a proposal, please do so at the address below and provide details describing your session. The deadline for submitting a proposal is Friday, June 9, 2017.

Presenters accepted for this year’s conference will be notified no later than Friday, June 30, 2017.  Communications also will be sent to any who are not selected to present.

Thank you for your interest!
