81st Annual CASB Convention Call for Presentations

Thank you for submitting your proposals for this year's convention!

Proposal submission does not guarantee acceptance and must be aligned with the topics listed. Please read the guidelines listed below before submitting your proposal.

In submitting your proposal please include the following:

  • Presenter(s) CV
  • Summary of presentation 
  • Name of co-presenter (no more than 4 allowed)

Please pay special attention as you complete your proposal as incomplete proposals will not be reviewed. CASB reserves the right to revise session titles and descriptions.

Here are a few tips to help you navigate the system:

  •  Log into the CASB website with your username (email) and password. The form will save your information. 
  • If you leave the site before submitting, log back in, click on the Call for Presentations button and continue to fill out the form.
  • Click the Submit button.
  • Once your form is submitted you WILL NOT be able to make changes.
  • Multiple proposals are limited to two and you will need to re-enter your data.
  • If you run into problems, contact Connie Summers at [email protected].  

Guidelines:

  • Honor the governance role of boards of education. Please familiarize yourself with the roles and responsibilities of school board members. You can find a good amount of information at casb.org or in a google search.
  • Include the voice of school board members. Partner with a school district that has experience with your session topic and ask them to co-present with you. We rarely choose session proposals that do not include a school board member or superintendent.
  • Allow and manage time for participant interaction and understanding. Explain how you will incorporate opportunities for engagement and discussion.
  • Selling is not allowed. School board members come to the conference to learn and network. If you wish to develop a relationship with board members, we have sponsorship and exhibit opportunities available.
  • All presenters are required to register if they choose to attend the convention. If they choose not to attend the convention, they do not need to register.

Submissions must have all presenters named. Partners, sponsors, and exhibitors are required to co-present with a school district board of education member and/or superintendent and must list co-presenters in the submission. Submissions will not be considered if co-presenters are not listed. If a proposal is chosen, there is a deadline for accepting updates to co-presenter information and/or substitutions. 

Companies are invited to submit a presentation but, if accepted, must be an exhibitor and/or sponsor.

CASB does not pay honorariums or stipends to presenters. CASB does not arrange or pay for transportation or hotel accommodations. 

Our school boards represent small and large districts, urban, suburban and rural districts.
