If you’d like to open your company’s door to California’s largest network of school business professionals and build lasting relationships to help your business thrive, take note: The deadline to submit a request for proposal to present a workshop at the CASBO 2022 Annual Conference & California School Business Expo (March 29 through April 1 in Sacramento) expires September 17!

For the first time since 2019, we’re holding our premier annual event in person, and we’d be thrilled if our associate members* take part in making it one to remember. We’re seeking innovative workshop ideas from your company that will catch the eye of prospective attendees this spring, so if you have an idea for an educational topic that you know will engage members and non-members alike, enhance their professional development and add value to CASBO 2022, we want to hear from you!

Submitting your proposal is easy. Just review the Workshop Proposal Requirements and Instructions and then complete and submit the online Workshop Proposal Form 5a. But don’t delay! Proposals are due Friday, September 17, 2021, by 5:00 p.m.

Later in September, the CASBO professional councils will review and make final decisions on all proposals, at which time we will notify you whether or not your proposal has been accepted. If your proposal is accepted, we will send a final speaker confirmation email to you no later than Friday, January 21, 2022. (In order to meet conference publication deadlines, you must be ready to confirm your final speaker by the date requested in that email.) Final presentation materials will be due Friday, March 11, 2022.

Should you have any questions about your proposal submittal, you may contact Lisa Ryker, CASBO Associate Member Committee liaison to the Annual Conference Committee, at (510) 450-1999 or lryker@pbk-wlc.com; or Lori Smith, CASBO director of conference & events, at (916) 504-2241 or lsmith@casbo.org.

Put your workshop up for consideration today, and make plans to be an integral part of our in-person return to Sacramento in 2022. We look forward to working with you!

*To submit a workshop proposal and participate in the selection process at this stage, you must be a current associate member. After all associate member workshop proposals are reviewed and accepted in September, if we decide to add more workshops to our 2022 conference lineup, we will put out an open call for proposals.
