NACTA Workshop Guidelines and Call for Proposals

Workshop proposals are encouraged from NACTA members, NACTA committees, trade show vendors, and the host institution. Workshops should emphasize participation, often with hands-on or problem solving efforts. Workshops usually have a narrow focus or interest that will appeal to a smaller audience. Workshops are to be 2 hours in duration.

NACTA committees are allowed (and encouraged) to develop a workshop for the annual meetings. Other committees have the option to co-sponsor a workshop with another committee but this is not required. The Educational Issues and Teaching Improvement (EITI) committee will encourage a thematic workshop from the host institution each year. With the addition of the trade show; vendors may also wish to submit a workshop proposal to highlight their products.

All workshop proposals should have a workshop coordinator. The designated coordinator should submit workshop proposals. The coordinator will work with the host institution planning committee. All workshop speakers must be registered for the annual meeting.

  • Coordinator

Each year a member of the host institution along with the EITI committee chair will review proposals and work with the conference program and host site committee to select workshops.

Coordinators may also make a request for funds to support the workshop (i.e. used for travel for a speaker; shipment of equipment; printing of materials and shipping, etc.). The NACTA Executive Committee will determine if financial support is needed and will determine the amount to be awarded. The NACTA Executive Committee will determine if funding is to be allocated on or before the March Executive Committee meeting.
