Process for Submitting a Conference Session Proposal

Process for Submitting a Conference Session Proposal

Use these guidelines for submitting a proposal for a session for a CHA conference or event.

Who can submit?

Hospitals are not limited to the number of proposals they may submit. Proposal authors from CHA member hospitals may invite non-members to co-present. The proposal must be submitted by the member. Non-member participation is based on review and must be disclosed during the call for proposals process. 

Online submission

All proposals should be submitted online. Each proposal submitted must contain:

  • Presenter information
  • A blinded abstract with no hospital names or proper nouns of city, state, county or project name. 

Presentation formats

The Conference Advisory Committees seek proposals for the following types of presentations:

  • Educational Session: 45- or 60-minute concurrent session
  • Poster Presentation: Monday at 4 p.m. through Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. 

Participation requirements

All presenters are required to adhere to all of the conditions outlined in the speaker agreements. If accepted to present, you are required to pay the member presenter fee of $1,100. 

Acceptance notifications

Proposal decisions are announced after review and final selection by the Conference Advisory Committee, two months after submission.

Proposals are reviewed and rated based on the following criteria. Review the full rating form.

  • Relevance/Interest (10 points): Is the proposal relevant to the conference themes and objectives? Is the topic appealing to the conference audiences?
