Proposal Review Process & Timeline

Review and Acceptance Process

Each workshop proposal will be reviewed by three Early Childhood Education professionals. All reviews are confidential. Criteria for acceptance will include, but is not limited to the following:

  • Workshop timeliness and relevancy of content
  • Educational value of content
  • Workshop objectives and do the learner outcomes meet the objectives
  • Is the proposal thorough and professional
  • Presenter qualifications
  • If the presenter is commercially vested in the product did he/she provide a clear understanding of how they will present their workshop without giving the audience a sales pitch
  • Equal representation of presentations among the topic tracks

All proposal submitters will be notified of their presentation's status starting in late November 2022.
