Call for Proposals

EdRev Expo 2019 will feature a variety of sessions on topics related to learning and attention issues, and the anxiety and depression which often accompany them.

Sessions can expect audiences including a mix of parents, students, educators and other professionals. We welcome proposals for a general audience or directed specifically to one of those audiences.

We are accepting proposals for two types of sessions: Workshops and Discussion Groups – see descriptions below.

We may not be able to accommodate all proposals this year, but all will be filed for future reference, with the growth of this event in mind.

If you have questions, please email edrev@chconline.org.

Please submit only one Workshop proposal /presenter or organization. If you are affiliated with an organization, business or company, you can reference that affiliation during the session, but it should not be a commercial for that organization, business or company.

There is no presentation or slides required to facilitate a Discussion Group. The facilitator only needs to be prepared to guide the discussion on the topic and add expertise as appropriate.
