Have an idea for a conference session? Submit a session proposal!
We will be accepting session proposals through December 31, 2023. Sessions should cover common areas of concern and interest for CAF members and Units. Each conference session will be 75 minutes in length; plan for each presentation/discussion to last approximately 55-65 minutes, with additional time included for discussion/Q&A. Preference will be given to proposals that include speakers/presenters from more than one Unit.
The CAF Conference Committee will be meeting in mid-January to review the session proposals and develop the final program. Session leaders will be notified shortly after. Upon selection, each session will be assigned a CAF staff liaison to support the session. Conference registration fees will be waived for Session Leaders/Moderators (one registration per session).
