Deadline for Submissions: March 1, 2008
The Annual Conference of the National Guardianship Association has earned a reputation for offering cutting edge information that is presented over a two-and-a half-day period of intense intellectual sharing and camaraderie. You are invited to become part of this exceptional event by making a presentation at the 2008 Annual Conference to be held Saturday, October 4 to Tuesday, October 7 in Nashville, Tennessee.
In 2007, nearly 500 professionals, firms, agencies, associations, judges, attorneys, and others attended the Conference, and based on the success of that program we anticipate an even larger audience for 2008. By sharing your expertise you will help improve the overall quality of guardianship services and highlight issues of interest and concern throughout the industry.
Because it allows the program to address a wider variety of timely topics, the sessions will not be restricted to specific themes or tracks. However, the conference program, as always, will acknowledge the interdependent and interdisciplinary nature of our work and address the broad interests that are shared by those involved in guardianship and surrogacy.
The committee is particularly interested in proposals for sessions that provide intermediate and advanced levels of information and education. The conference should provide working guardians and fiduciaries with knowledge they can take home and put to use immediately. Presentations and materials are expected to reflect the ethics and standards of the National Guardianship Association.
We encourage you to seriously consider contributing your expertise to this event and hope you will share this Call for Presentations with other people who you believe should also be solicited. Please note that NGA does not provide airfare, hotel costs, an honorarium, or a complimentary registration for presenters. However, a $100 discount on the Conference registration fee will be provided for each breakout session (not per speaker.)
To submit your proposal for a Conference presentation, please complete both pages of the attached form and return to them to the NGA business office by March 1, 2008. Proposals received after this date will be considered on a space-available basis only. Proposals will be reviewed by the program committee and selected upon the criteria of overall quality, originality, CEU applicability, and appropriateness to this program. Presenters will be notified of their acceptance in early April of 2008.
The Deadline for Submission is Saturday, March 1, 2008.
