Submit a Proposal


  • We welcome a broad range of topics that would be of interest to donor relations and stewardship professionals.
  • Attendees have a wide range of experience. A session can be general in scope or targeted to a demographic such as experience level, field (educational, healthcare, social service, arts, etc.), or shop size. The choice is yours.
  • Make your session dynamic! You are encouraged to interact with the audience—people learn best when they’re engaged with the speaker via discussion and/or questions. Presenters can fly solo or partner with others, however, the 50% registration discount applies to the session, not each presenter.
  • Please submit by April 30, 2021
