Selection Process

Sessions are intended to educate/support learning and therefore should not sell, promote, or pitch any specific product or service. We welcome and encourage a variety of formats to meet attendees' needs, such as traditional instruction, case studies, and panel discussions (panels with LeadingAge IN provider members are encouraged). 

Proposals will be evaluated based on the following criteria: 

  • Applicability to service providers across the continuum of care

  • Overall quality of content and education method

  • Timeliness and relevance of subject matter

  • Interactivity of the session

  • Qualifications, expertise, and experience level of the speaker(s) or panel

*Please note that presentations made to LeadingAge Indiana members as break out sessions at conferences are considered contributions to the profession and all related expenses (honoraria, travel, and program development) are the responsibilities of the presenter(s).
