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 early June of each year, we send out via email our Request for Proposals to solicit additional presentations from our partners and associate members. Our RFP announcement includes our Workshop Proposal Requirements and Instructions, and Workshop Proposal Form 5a, which must be completed and submitted. Proposals are usually due by 5:00 p.m. on June 30. To participate in the selection process at this stage, you must at minimum be a current CASBO associate member.

Step 3: In early July, CASBO professional councils review all proposals submitted pursuant to Steps 1 & 2 above and make their selections.

Step 4: In mid- to late summer, 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 September, 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*
  • The RFP process for 2023 will begin soon. Associate member workshop proposals are usually due by June 30 each year.
  • Open-call workshop proposals (if needed) are usually due by August 30 each year.
  • For 2023, if your workshop proposal is accepted, we will send you a final speaker confirmation email in approximately mid-January 2023. You must be ready to confirm your speakers by the date requested in that email.
  • For 2023, final presentation materials will be due approximately mid-March 2023.

*Dates are subject to change.

PROPOSAL CONTENT

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 2022 Program Guide.
