The “call for proposals” for the May 2022 conference has ended. Those who submitted proposals will hear back from the Planning Committee and UW Stevens Point in December.
The planning committee welcomes those who are new to presenting at conferences or other public events! We can provide support and assistance and encourage parents and other family members to join us as conference presenters. If you’d like to present but need some guidance on developing you proposal, please email Lynn at Family Voices – Lynn@fvofwi.org.
- PRESENTER APPLICATION
We recommend that presenters make their sessions highly interactive and allow time for questions and answers. Your audience will be parents, families and professionals with varying levels of understanding of presentation topics. Spanish interpreters will be available at some sessions. In addition, we will be live streaming many of the sessions for those who want to join the event virtually.
Past conference session topics have included:
- Advocacy and Family Leadership
- Community connections
- Early Intervention
- Family, Self-Care and Wellness
- Health Care, Nutrition
- Medicaid and Private Insurance
- Long-Term Supports and Services
- Transition After High School
- And many other topics!
This year, we are also looking for presentations that focus on topics for younger children and their families, like early intervention, the basics of programs and services, and resources for families who have children with new diagnoses or medical conditions.
If you have questions about submitting a proposal, please contact Lynn at Family Voices of WI at Lynn@fvofwi.org or 608-556-0375.
