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 5-6, 2023 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 18th 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 per speaker and a max of two (2) Hands on Trainings. When submitting multiple entries, please use the same email address each time, including ones where you are a co-presenter.  If you are selected as a presenter, only one of your submissions will be accepted.

Given our focus on community participation, we greatly welcome new presenters.  Whether this is your first proposal or your first NED, we strongly encourage you to give it a try and submit a proposal.  Here are some sample abstracts to assist you in crafting a pitch.  We are also holding open Office Hours May 25th at 12:00PM and June 14th at 7:00PM (eastern) to answer questions and offer advice.
