ACPE is now accepting proposals for the 2022 Imagine IT conference

Oct 26, 2021 | Attendees, Conference Information

The ACPE conference is a chance for IT professionals to connect as peers by collaborating and sharing their knowledge, expertise and skills. Your involvement as an ACPE member is foundational to our success in developing a great conference program.

The ACPE Board is now accepting session proposals for the May 2022 annual conference, scheduled May 4-6 at Mt. Hood Oregon Resort in Welches, Ore. Only ACPE members and/or those who are employed by an educational institution are eligible to speak; sponsor/vendor proposals and others who do not meet this requirement will not be considered.

Timeline

We highly suggest you submit proposals by Dec. 31, as initial selections will begin in mid-January. The Board has approved an extra incentive for presenters accepted February 1 to speak in either a Session or Workshop: these presenters are provided priority in conference registration and hotel room reservations at the resort. This incentive does not apply to Panels or Think Tank sessions. The board will consider proposals submitted between Dec. 31 and March 1 as space allows.
