Submit Your Session Proposals for Two 2019 League Conferences: Municipal Finance Institute and Fire Chiefs Leadership Seminar

March 25, 2019
The League is currently soliciting session proposals for two conferences — the Municipal Finance Institute and the Fire Chiefs Leadership Seminar. Both conferences will be held Dec. 11–12 in Garden Grove at the Hyatt Regency Orange County.
 
Session Proposal Submission Process
 
Submissions, non-commercial in nature, from any individual, group, business or organization, on any topic are welcome. The conference committees will only consider proposals submitted online through the proposal form. Because there is a word limit for the title and description of each proposal, the League recommends that people submitting session ideas first draft the proposal in a word processing program and then paste it into the online form.
 
The session selection process is highly competitive. Prepare a thorough, thoughtful and complete proposal that explains how the session would help local government staff in their professional role. Consider the following elements when submitting proposals:
  • Is the topic new and/or critical for local government?
  • Will this issue stimulate action and further important discussion?
  • Sessions may not include sales, commercialism or product promotion of any kind.
