3rd Biennial FAME Conference: Session Proposal Form
Music education professionals are invited to submit session proposals for the 3rd Biennial FAME Conference being held in Chicago, IL, July 20, 21, and 22, 2018. Proposals received by the deadline, January 31, 2018, will be reviewed by the Conference Planning Committee. The Committee will be guided in the selection of sessions by the following criteria: Quality of presentations (objectives and organization clearly communicated); innovation (brings new learning to conference attendees); importance and relevance to the profession (connects to statewide and national initiatives in arts education); practical and useful to our membership (easily replicable in a classroom).
All sessions are 60 minutes in length and all presenters are expected to be members of FAME and registered for the conference. Registration includes a reduced rate of $75.00 for all three days, and no charge for attending only the day of your session. Accepted sessions will not be scheduled unless registration is received. Presenters will be notified of acceptance by March 31, 2018. Co-presenters must also be registered for the conference at the reduced rates.
Steps to proposal completion:
1. Complete online session proposal form below by January 31, 2018.
2. Upon acceptance, pre-register for the conference and become a member of FAME, if you are not already.
A tentative schedule will be available online by the end of April. Schedule is subject to change at any time before conference, but once tentative schedule is made public, presenters will be notified of any changes.
