CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS
Christian Leadership Alliance invites you to submit a teaching proposal for The Outcomes Conference 2019, April 16-18, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency in Dallas, Texas!
The theme of The Outcomes Conference 2019 is "Rooted." To excel as Christian leaders in today’s complex world we must be both deeply rooted in Christ, and strongly connected to one another. Our teaching sessions should integrate ideas to strengthen the importance of being unified and interdependent in our shared mission to transform the world for Christ.
- Call for Presentations proposals are due to Christian Leadership Alliance by July 27, 2018
- Status updates (yes/no) will be provided to you by August 31, 2018
- Presenters submit handouts to The Alliance by no later than March 11, 2019
We invite you to submit a proposal for:
- 6-hour Full Day Intensives (3 presenters, maximum)
- 1.5 hour Conference Workshops (2 presenters, maximum)
We have exciting news! At the Outcomes Conference 2019, we’ll be offering 1.5 hour Conference Workshops as well as 6-hour Full Day Intensives on both Wednesday, April 17 and Thursday, April 18. This gives attendees great options every day and allows them the freedom to personalize their own conference experience.
General Submission Guidelines:
Submissions for The Outcomes Conference must be:
- Outcomes oriented
Christian Leadership Alliance offers higher thinking that is transformative in the life of today’s Christian leader. At the center of that commitment is our experienced faculty, and the Christian leadership training offered in the Full Day Intensives and Workshops at The Outcomes Conference.
You are welcome to pass this information along to other qualified presenters. Please note that we prioritize submissions from Alliance members. We also seek to maintain a proper balance between ministry practitioners and experts from the business world in each of its learning tracks.
1. Alliance Members will be Prioritized:
All are welcome to submit, but presentations submitted by Alliance Members will be prioritized.
2. Submission Does Not Guarantee Selection:
We are blessed each year with more submissions than teaching slots, so submission does not guarantee selection. Proposals will be evaluated in light of the course description, learning objectives, presenters’ credentials and expertise, past evaluations of presenters from previous conference courses, and the overall needs of the conference program.
3. Academic Focus:
Presenters must agree that they will not use the time for promotion of their organization or its services, but rather sharing successful practices and takeaways that meet Christian Leadership Alliance's "General Submission Guidelines."
4. Academic Level:
We will seek to offer a blend of all levels in our training: Basic, Intermediate, Advanced, Update and Overview.
5. Connect to the Conference Theme:
It is ideal if your submission connects with this year's conference theme, "Rooted." We would just ask that you weave into your presentation how applying the principles you share will enhance the impact of leaders and organizations they represent.
Eight Lifelong Learning Tracks:
Our Call for Presentations covers the eight tracks of professional leadership content offered by Christian Leadership Alliance - Executive Leadership, Resource Development, Financial Management, People Management and Care, Communications and Marketing, Internet and Technology, Board Governance, and Tax and Legal.
Track Content Guidelines:
Submissions should be oriented towards Christian nonprofit leadership, although sessions may offer broad application for any called to Christian leadership regardless of sphere. The submissions can, and should, go beyond these specific topics, but please see below for topical ideas in each of our eight educational tracks:
1. Executive Leadership
2. Resource Development
3. Financial Management
4. People Management and Care
5. Communications and Marketing
6. Internet and Technology
