Tips for Submitting Your Proposal
  1. GIVE IT TIME - A good proposal takes time to create! Set aside a few hours to review past proposals, draft out your presentation outline, and craft your title and session description.

  2. MAKE IT CATCHY - The title and description you create now will be used for all promotional materials, so consider the audience, topic area and relevance to your presentation. Use action verbs and results-oriented words. Your title must be both attention-grabbing and give a good description of your session.

  3. GET CREDIT - Sessions that are SHRM or HRCI accredited have an increased likelihood of being selected for the conference, and tend to have higher attendance. Review the guidelines for HRCI (Human Resources Certification Institute) and SHRM (Society for Human Resource Management). 

  4. SHARE TAKEAWAYS - Think about the learning outcomes. What information will attendees learn? What new insights will you cultivate? What best practices or how-to’s will you share? Answer the following: “By attending this session, attendees will gain…”
