Proposal Template

Use our Proposal Template Planning Doc to assist you in planning your submission.  This Google Doc walks you through all of the questions that will be asked during the Proposal Submission, allowing you to think through your answers before submitting. Our system will time out, so be sure to save often so you can return where you left off. The template allows you to copy and paste the text into the online proposal.

1. Use a different Web Browser

Presenter Requirements
All METC presenters are required to register for the conference by the Early-Bird Deadline, December 5, 2018. After acceptance notices have been sent, presenters will receive instructions on how to register to receive the presenter discounted rate. Presenters are highly encouraged to provide a link to any presentation resources to be shared with their audience. METC will not collect your resources to share, however we will encourage you and others to collaborate in collecting links to sessions through an Online Crowd-Sourcing Method as well as through social media, tagging us @METCedplus and using our hashtag #METCpd & #METC19. 

Exhibitors & Sponsors
Those organizations interested in presenting an Exhibitor/Sponsor Presentation should submit a session proposal.  There will be a limited number of Exhibitor Presentations available and they will fill quickly.  

*Submitting a proposal does not guarantee a spot; the presentation submission must be accepted and the organization must sign up as an Exhibitor or Sponsor when registration for Exhibitors & Sponsors opens in September 2018.

Be sure to follow us on social media @METCedplus and our conference hashtag #METC19. If you have any questions contact McKinna Allen
