Planning is underway for the 2018 Annual Conference, OSAE's premier educational and networking event of the year.  We want to make sure this annual conference is outstanding – but we need your help.

The Professional Development committee is reaching out to the OSAE community for input and ideas to help shape the overall educational program. We want to hear from you!  Our committee is looking forward to your expert insight and creativity as you come up with ideas for sessions!

Here's how you can help:

Present a session at Annual Conference:

To submit your ideas for the 2018 OSAE Annual Conference and be a part of this unique, engaging and fun program, complete the Call for Presentations. Applications must be received by COB on Friday, Oct. 6, 2017. The committee will review all applications and provide a status notification in early December.

In addition, the committee is eager to see proposals for team-based presentations – i.e. demonstrating teaming up with colleagues and/or vendors to develop a new offering, facilitate research, solve a problem or create a best practice, etc.

The program format is in the developmental stages and we are preparing a schedule of sessions that vary in length. While the conference attendees generally prefer 60-minutes sessions, we realize some topics require 90-minutes. Two-hour blocks will be considered if there is a compelling reason to do so.
