How Our Selection Process Works
Step 1: Beginning in approximately May of each year, members of CASBO's 15 professional councils independently solicit presentation proposals.
Step 2: In approximately June of each year, we send out a Request for Proposals to solicit additional presentations from our partners and associate members. Our RFP announcement includes our Workshop Proposal Requirements, Instructions and Workshop Proposal Form 5a, which must be completed and submitted. To participate in the selection process at this stage, you must at minimum be a current CASBO associate member.
Step 3: In approximately August of each year, CASBO's professional councils review all proposals submitted pursuant to Steps 1 & 2 above and make their selections.
Step 4: In approximately October of each year, if we determine that more presentations are needed for our conference lineup, we send out an "open call" RFP to solicit additional workshop presentations. This RFP announcement includes our Open Call Workshop Proposal Requirements, Instructions and Workshop Proposal Form 5, which must be completed and submitted. To participate in the selection process at this stage, you must be a current CASBO member of any type.
Step 5: In approximately January of each year, CASBO's Annual Conference Committee reviews all open-call proposals submitted pursuant to Step 4 above and makes its selections.
Proposal Deadlines and Other Due Dates*
- Associate member workshop proposals are due by June 30, 2021.
- Open-call workshop proposals usually are due by December 30 each year.
- If your workshop proposal is accepted, final speaker confirmation is due by January 20, 2022, with final presentation materials due March 12, 2022.
*Dates are subject to change.
Proposed presentation content must be unbiased, informational and non-sales oriented. Initial proposals can be general and conceptual in nature. As the due date for final presentation materials nears, content can be further developed. For examples of the types of workshop content accepted, view our 2021 Program Guide.
