About the call for proposals

The 2019 ASAE Annual Meeting & Exposition, to be held August 10-13 in Columbus, Ohio, is an inclusive opportunity for all current and future ASAE members in the association industry to engage in exceptional formal and informal learning experiences that help to advance career and professional development, individual productivity, and organizational effectiveness.

ASAE Learning is seeking education proposals that reflect sound adult learning principles and reflect the best thinking in the field, informed by theory, research, and practice. To deliver exceptional learning experiences, preference may be given to proposals that are positioned to deliver a mix of the following:

  • Reflect innovative, cutting-edge content, and evidence-based practice
  • Present a business case with evidence supported by research or data
  • Explore issues important to international audiences
Instructional Design:
  • Stimulate and provoke discussion, audience engagement, and outcome-focused design
  • Facilitate knowledge transfer and development of new competencies
  • Use methods that draw out relevant past knowledge and experiences
  • Target emerging leaders through executive-level professionals
  • Provide diverse approaches for different types of learners
  • Demonstrate relevance of lessons through “real-life” case studies

About the review process

A methodology that widely solicits content proposals and combines input of peers, volunteer leaders, and professional staff is designed to help ASAE ensure that the members of the association management community have a significant voice in co-creating the conference program.

All proposals will evaluated by Peer Reviewers (anonymously) and the Program Advisory Committee based on the following five criteria:

  • Originality
  • Relevance
  • Program Design
  • Ability to Inspire Action
  • Overall Quality

Together, members and staff ensure that program content is timely, relevant, and targeted to attendee needs.
