Call for Presenters

We invite you to propose a breakout session for the 2020 MnAEYC-MnSACA Annual State Conference on January 31 & February 1, 2020 at the St. Paul RiverCentre.

What are the benefits of presenting?

  • The choice between an honorarium or complimentary conference registration for the day you present.
  • Opportunity to present at a premier event with 1,000 early childhood and afterschool professionals in attendance.
  • Enhance your credibility and stature in the field.
  • Contribute to your community's expertise.
  • Challenge yourself in a new way.

Sessions should meet the professional and personal development needs of program directors & coordinators, teachers, and front-line staff. Breakout sessions should present best practices, innovative and evidence-based strategies, research and resources in a variety of topic areas.

We are committed to creating a diverse, safe, and welcoming space for participants to learn and share. We want to make sure we receive conference session proposals from the widest audience as possible, including from you! All workshop proposals are welcome and will be considered.

Please pay close attention to your description so participants have an accurate feel for the session content, the age group you are speaking to, and the experience level of the content addresses. Please write your description in the third person.  MnAEYC-MnSACA reserves the right to edit your description for formatting consistency and clarity.

Please visit the FAQ page for information on format, room set up, and other common questions.   

Room set-up options are based on availability and scheduling. MnAEYC-MnSACA can not guarantee that all set-up preferences will be met. Please Note: Presenters should not rely on their stated preference unless they receive explicit confirmation of room set-up from MnAEYC-MnSACA. 

Presenters are not required to register for the Conference if they do not plan on participating beyond their scheduled presentation. If a presenter wishes to attend other sessions at the conference and participate in the General Sessions, and enjoy the food, they must register as an attendee and either choose the complimentary registration or if choosing the honorarium, pay the applicable registration fee. Presenters will receive complimentary registration for the day they are presenting only.

  2. Presenters are responsible for providing copies of any handouts.
  3. MnAEYC-MnSACA will provide LCD projectors and screens in all presentation rooms. Presenters are responsible for their own laptops and PowerPoint presentations as well as any additional audio or AV needs they may have.
  4. With permission, full PowerPoint presentations will be made available via the MnAEYC-MnSACA website to registered attendees after the event.
  5. Presentations are not to be used as an opportunity to “showcase” or “sell” business, services or products in any way.
