Call for Proposals

Thank you so much for volunteering to contribute your story to enrich our Northeast Ohana Community. Learning from fellow Trailblazers is the very heart of Northeast Dreamin’. This year, we will be convening in person on October 15-16, 2024 in Manchester, New Hampshire.

Though you are nominating yourself as a presenter, please be sure to register your attendance. If your proposal is selected, your conference registration fee will be refunded. Proposal submissions will close on Sunday, June 16th at 11:59pm EDT.

As a community-led event, we are committed to providing speaking opportunities to as many people as possible. We will consider up to four (4) breakout proposals, two (2) Hands on Trainings and one (1) keynote per speaker. When submitting multiple entries, please use the same email address each time, including ones where you are a co-presenter.
