December 6, 2017, Department, by NRPA

Calendar 410

The 2018 NRPA Annual Conference call for proposals has ended. However, if you missed the opportunity to submit your session ideas, there is another option. Starting February 26, 2018, we will be collecting speed session proposals. These highly engaging 20-minute sessions are always a popular attraction at the conference. Speed sessions are also a great way for new speakers to get involved in conference speaking. Start preparing your NRPA Annual Conference speed sessions ideas now!
