2016 Session Proposal Submissions

Welcome to the 2016 Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo session proposal site!  

Start Planning Now

The session proposal submission process will open July 14th. 

Session Development

Our crowd-sourced process creates an online community that allows session organizers to develop sessions through networking and collaboration with peers. 

It is highly recommended that you build proposals over a six-week period rather than waiting to start the process just prior to the deadline. The National Program Committee and your peers will be commenting and offering feedback as your ideas grow and develop. This is your chance to pose questions, address concerns, and make improvements before you hit submit. 

Consider your proposal a work in progress!

Audience Engagement

Session formats have been designed in an effort to inspire session organizers to think creatively about interactive and dynamic proposals, and leave ample time for participant discussion. Think about ways to engage your session participants, and be sure to include details in your session proposal.
