How to Submit
 
The League recently added a new type of session format for applicants to submit a proposal for most conferences. Along with the traditional-style panel presentation, applicants can now expand their creative side and select the alternative format option for proposals.  

Sessions may not include sales, commercialism or product promotion of any kind. Ideas need to be fully completed and submitted through the online proposal form to be considered by the committee. There is a limit to the amount of words allowed within the title and description of each proposal. We recommend you write your proposal in a word-processing program first, and paste the final version into the online form.
 
If you have any questions, please contact education@cacities.org.
