Roundtable facilitators should be prepared to lead an interactive discussion of their topic with interested participants.  Hand-outs may also be provided to participants. Roundtable sessions will be one hour in length or less, and can be facilitated by one or two people.  CAP may also offer Workshop Sessions which will be longer in duration.  CAP representatives may contact you to inquire if you are interested in facilitating a workshop instead if your topic is a good fit for the workshop schedule.

Proposals should be no more than 300 words in length including a concise title.  All proposals must be based on work or initiatives occurring in accelerated programs at a post-secondary institution.  Proposals will be evaluated based on their specific theme and current criticality to accelerated programs.

Proposals should include facilitator names, titles, mailing addresses, institutional affiliations, daytime phone numbers and email addresses.  The preferred method of submission is via email as an attached Word document.  Please submit proposals to Jeannie McCarron at by Friday, February 7th.  A conference committee will meet to review all proposals. You will be notified as to the status of your proposal no later than Friday, February 21st.
