When are accept/decline notifications being sent?
Accept/decline notifications will be sent to the email used in the proposal process on April 20, 2015.   Please save your accept/decline email notification.
 
What are the requirements for presenters and moderators?
All presenters, including pre-conference presenters and all moderators, must have current (2015) individual membership AND be pre-registered for the conference no later than July 15, 2015. Membership and Conference Registration are two separate processes and require separate fees. Individual members receive reduced conference registration rates. 

How many times may I present at the annual conference?
Whereas we do not have a strict rule on how many times a participant can appear in the program, we do recommend no more than two because of scheduling challenges.

CONFERENCE ORGANIZING
How are plenary and keynote speakers selected?
NWSA's president serves as the conference chair or co-chair and works with a program committee to select keynote and plenary speakers who can address the conference theme and subthemes.

I have an idea for a special session or event; how can I suggest that it be included in the program?
The best way to see a session included in the program is to submit it before the proposal submission deadline annually.  Invited sessions are determined by the president and program committee (see above).
