Presentation Proposal Submission Guidelines

LeadingAge Ohio urges submitters to consider the following as they develop content and identify speakers for proposed sessions.

Proposals that are incomplete or submitted late cannot be considered for review.

Submission Limits:

  • An individual can submit a maximum of two proposals and be included as an additional speaker/panelist in proposals submitted by other organizations.
  • Content changes cannot be made to a proposal or additional information included once it has been submitted.
  • Proposal cannot be accepted once the submission site closes; no deadline extensions or exceptions will be granted. Deadline to submit proposals is Friday, January 19, 2024.

Important Considerations:

  • Tailor the information to the intended audience; be specific about the topic's relevance and applicability to a specific setting or professional discipline.
  • Avoid focusing your session content on a specific product or service; describe what you do and how it can benefit providers.

Evaluation Criteria

A peer review committee of LeadingAge Ohio members, experts in the field and association staff will review all proposal submissions using the following criteria:

  • Overall quality, clarity and depth of session content
  • Relevance of topic and applicability of concepts to aging services providers
  • Presentation delivery and/or education methods that enhance the learning experience
  • Experienced and knowledgeable speakers, as well as diversity of perspectives represented
