Primary Topic/Track     
Keywords: Please enter 1 or 2 Keywords that describe your presentation (maximum of two words per field).
Program Format
Please rank - numerically - the formats you would accept for this presentation. (1 indicates the format you feel most appropriate.) The committee may assign you a different format to ensure a balanced program. Mark only the formats you will accept. (Choosing all formats will not enhance the chances of getting your proposal accepted.)
Lecture or Discussion Format for Concurrent Sessions
A 60-minute presentation by one or more presenters; discussion time for questions and answers is encouraged. The length of time set aside for discussion is at the discretion of the presenters.
Panel Format for Concurrent Session
We encourage institutions to come together with a common issue to form a panel.

A panel will consist of a brief introduction by the panel moderator, followed by a brief presentation from each panelist followed by an interactive question-and-answer period with the audience. The best panel sessions are highly interactive, with panelists representing multiple points of view or perspectives from different institutions.

Panels will be formed by individuals submitting their own teams; panels will not be teamed up by the Conference Committee. All panel sessions are expected to have a moderator for their session.

Panels are expected to represent the views or perspectives of more than one institution.
Poster Presentation
Presented in the form of a bulletin display and delivered primarily through the use of graphics and handout materials. These sessions are most appropriate for display of specific programmatic approaches and research findings. The presenter should expect to make brief remarks, share information, and answer questions about the presentation topic. All poster sessions are presented during a 1-hour poster buffet breakfast.

Is your proposal based on the results of a NACADA member survey? NACADA member surveys must be approved PRIOR to submission of a presentation proposal (see survey guidelines HERE).

Failure to secure NACADA sponsorship of a member survey prior to submitting a conference proposal is grounds for cancellation of a proposal/conference session.

If you have a question, please call the Executive Office (785-532-5717) or email

Proposals being submitted for a PreConference Workshop (PCW) will only be evaluated for a PCW. PCWs are expected to have a lengthier abstract (250 words), a proposal outlining the interaction to take place, and a detailed explanation of materials the attendees will receive. If you would like to be considered for a Concurrent or Poster Session please submit an additional application with a proposal fitting that format.

Click the Okay button to continue submitting a PCW proposal or to change your session format to a Concurrent, Panel, or Poster session.

You may not choose both a PreConference Workshop (PCW) format and another session type. We have cleared the PreConference workshop selection for you at this time.
