The Livestock Conservancy is calling for speakers and presenters to submit presentation topics for our 2019 Heritage Livestock Conference: All Things Sheep!
We encourage interactive programs that provide opportunities for audience participation. The two types of presentations are as follows:
• Pre-Conference Clinics – held on Fridays and can be half-day or whole-day programs. Hands-on, demonstration, and off-site topics are encouraged.
• Workshops - one hour in length and held throughout Saturday. Can be a single presenter or panel discussion.
• Post-Conference clinics - held on Sunday and can be half-day or whole-day program. For topics requiring more time and in-depth discussion
Possible Topics (not limited to these)
Skill Level of Presenters & Selection Process
Presenters should have a thorough knowledge of their topic and experience to support their expertise in the subject. (This must be reflected in the presenter bio.) They must have the ability to express the presentation content clearly and concisely to the audience. Proposals will be evaluated based on their content and the programming needs of the conference. Programs should have a clear take-home message and practical information for participants. Upon final review, proposal status will be provided by June 5, 2019. Submission of a proposal is not a guarantee of acceptance.
Registration Fees & Compensation
All presenters will receive conference registration (does not include pre-conference clinics) with access to all conference events. Presenters will also receive a modest honorarium for their presentations that can be used to help cover travel expenses. Upon proposal acceptance, speakers will be required to make their own travel and hotel arrangements and will receive the honorarium within 30 days after the conference. Speakers not wishing to be compensated may choose to donate the honorarium back to The Livestock Conservancy.
A proposal must include:
