Workshop Proposals

ACLAIMH is now accepting workshop proposals for the 2018 ACLAIMH Conference.

Use the links below to generate ideas, gather your thoughts and submit your proposal online.
DEADLINE: June 30, 2018.

We are seeking your best education session ideas that deal with all aspects of working in the non-profit world. We encourage you to share your creativity, knowledge and vision. We have provided a sample list of topics to help you identify and frame your ideas. The list is not exhaustive, so don’t let it limit you!

Our participants range from CEOs/executive directors to direct care workers who are looking for all levels of content that explore the tried-and-true, as well as the new and improved ways of doing things in their professional and personal lives. With your help, we aim to create a learning experience that engages, challenges and empowers our nonprofit community-based service providers.

Here are some questions to help you come up with session ideas: Have you started a new program or service? Do you have a fresh look on a specific topic? Can you supply participants with tangible strategies or tactics to do their jobs better? Do you know of ways to reduce stress?

Our attendees want to be engaged and challenged,
so put on your thinking caps and give us your best ideas!
