2019 ABE Summer Institute - Presenters

Literacy Action Network and the Minnesota Community Education Association are now seeking presentation proposals for the 2019 ABE State Summer Institute, which will be held August 14-16 at the St. Cloud Civic Center, St. Cloud, MN. We hope that new and experienced ABE staff will consider sharing their ideas and expertise with their colleagues at this regional conference. 

Presentation proposals will be blind reviewed, scored, and selected using a scoring rubric. With a blind review process, reviewers must rely on the quality of the proposal and the level of detail provided. Please note that your presentation proposal should be as clear as possible. Presenters are strongly encouraged to review the scoring criteria as they are preparing their proposals.

Proposals are due April 1, 2019. Presenters will be notified by May 17, 2019 whether their proposal(s) has/have been accepted.
