Article8Regional Consortia Invited to Submit a Presentation Proposal for the 2016 AEBG Annual Summit
Please consider submitting a presentation proposal to share your successes at the 2016 AEBG Summit. Proposals that support and demonstrate progress and innovation in the areas of data collection, WIOA/program alignment, student case management, student tracking in a regional setting, seamless transition, and student acceleration are encouraged. Please submit the Summit Presentation Proposal Form using the link below by September 9, 2016.
Important Note: Although the lead speaker must be from an AEBG regional consortium, they may have assistance on the presentation from a subcontractor(s) that is considered an expert in the field. Outside vendors who assist with a presentation do not count against the four representatives for the consortium, but those outside presenters should register for the conference as well. ALL PRESENTERS MUST REGISTER TO ATTEND THE CONFERENCE. Acceptance of a proposal does not automatically register presenters. In order to allow all attendees the opportunity to benefit from your presentation, you may be asked to repeat your breakout session.
