Submitters will receive a final decision on their proposal in late July 2022. 

If you have a question about submitting a proposal, please contact the Region X Team

Submit your proposal early!

Region X is excited to announce incentives for the Call for Proposals for our upcoming Conference in Albany, sponsored by iTEP & J-Check!

Once submissions open on April 26th, be one of the first to submit a completed session proposal and you could win a $50 gift card! The first two session proposal submissions for each Knowledge Community are eligible to receive this prize (gift cards will be given to the lead presenter).  

In addition, if your proposal is selected for the Region X Conference, you may be asked to present for one of our two State Conferences as well! If asked, note that you are not required to present at both the Region X Conference and State Conference if you prefer not to do so. If selected and you agree to present at your State Conference, registrations will be waived in a random drawing of two session presenters (one for the Upstate NY Conference and one for the Downstate NY/NJ Conference)! Learn more about our 2022 State Conferences!
