Those selected to facilitate will receive the CAP Member registration fee, and CAP Members who are selected will receive an extra special gift from CAP!
Proposals should fall into one of the three Conference Tracks:

Roundtable sessions will be 50 minutes in length, and can be facilitated by one or two people.  CAP may also offer Workshop Sessions which will be longer in duration. CAP representatives may contact you to inquire if you are interested in facilitating a workshop instead if your topic is a good fit for the workshop schedule.
