Proposal Submission Deadline: March 16, 2018
The 2018 Joint Conference Education Subcommittee invites you to submit poster presentation proposals for the 2018 APC/NACC Joint Conference, July 12 – 15 at the Marriott Anaheim in Anaheim, California.
The 2018 conference theme will be Partners in Shaping the Future.
Our goals at the 2018 Joint Conference will be:
- Leading with Professionalism and Integrity,
- Collaborating with other Professions to serve those in our Care,
- Empowering the Profession through Research,
- Supporting Diversity and Inclusiveness.
Posters related to our theme and goals will be given strong consideration during the selection process.
Poster presentations will allow you to share your expertise, inspire colleagues, stimulate thoughtful discussion and educate others on important issues within institutional chaplaincy.
Posters are visual presentations of knowledge: results of research, research-in-progress reports, summaries of innovations or initiatives, literature reviews, or other highlights from your work providing spiritual care to those you serve. Beyond workshops and professional development intensives, poster displays offer conference attendees an additional way to take in new knowledge. And they become visual aides to in-depth conversation between attendees and poster presenters. Please note that poster displays are not intended to replace or serve as marketing or advertising.
There are many resources that can help you develop your poster, including guidelines and information on creating a professional poster presentation (see poster guidelines and hints buttons at the top of this webpage). We are continuing to partner with MakeSigns.com to offer poster templates and discounts.
Accepted posters will be displayed on Friday, July 13 through Sunday, July 15, 2018. There will be a session 5:30 p.m. – 6:45 p.m. on Saturday, July 14 that will allow presenters to interact with conference participants. Presenters can also get a discount on early bird conference registration.
We look forward to reviewing your poster proposal and encourage all members and friends of APC and NACC to consider this opportunity for the 2018 joint conference. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
