From now through November 1, NENA is accepting session proposals for the NENA 2020 Conference & Expo taking place at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, CA from June 13-18.

Presenting a session at NENA 2020 is an excellent opportunity to share your knowledge and experience with an audience of 9-1-1 professionals eager to gain and share information. It is also your chance to give back to the profession and help inspire, inform, and educate attendees on a variety of important issues.

Benefits for those selected to present at NENA 2020 include:

  • The lowest possible rate for full-conference registration or a free one-day pass if you will only be attending on the day you present;
  • Access to the speaker lounge for the duration of the conference;
  • A special speaker thank-you gift; and
  • Bio and profile listed in the NENA 2020 conference app.

 To ensure your submission receives due consideration, please ensure that:

  • Your proposal is issue-focused, not product-focused;
  • Your 65-word presentation description contains a precise objective;
  • You are able to identify three clear audience takeaways;
  • You fully complete all areas of the submission form and provide accurate contact information, including phone number(s), email address(es), and mailing address(es);
  • You use proper grammar, capitalization, and punctuation; and
  • You provide the names of any co-presenters with your submission (or prior to the close of the submission window).

 Your session should address one of the following topic areas:

  • Analytics & Data
  • Cybersecurity
  • Facility Planning
  • Frontline Skills
  • GIS & Databases
  • Innovation
  • International
  • Leadership
  • Management
  • Network Technology
  • Next Generation 9-1-1
  • Preparedness
  • PSAP Technology
  • Pub Ed & Outreach
  • Public Policy
  • Standards & Best Practices
  • Train the Trainer
  • Wellness          

 Click here to submit your great idea today! All proposals are due by Friday, November 1.  

Session submitters will receive acceptance or rejection notifications by mid-January. Submitters selected for the conference will receive multiple communications from NENA and will be invited to at least one session facilitation webinar. Finally, new for 2020, breakout presenters will be required to submit a handout of key session takeaways to be provided to conference attendees via the event app (due to NENA by June 1).

If you do not receive either an acceptance or rejection email from NENA by January 15, then please contact Lisa Fulton.
