Call for Proposals

Submit your Concurrent or Roundtable Session Presentation

The Chair Academy invites you to be a part of our 28th Annual International Leadership Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. Submit your presentation today.   

The Academy is committed to providing concurrent sessions and roundtable discussions that are relevant, practical, engaging, interactive, and inspiring. All presentations are learner centered, actively involving participants throughout discussions and activities. Outcomes include:

• Addressing academic and administrative needs of higher education/organizational leaders
• Developing and enhancing skill sets required for effective leadership
• Maximizing opportunities for conferees to interact, network, and build community

Sessions are NOT to promote publications or other materials that involve endorsing consulting services or recommending commercial ventures. All presentations are voluntary.


Conference presentations are an excellent opportunity for educational leaders to provide subject matter expertise, share research, and elicit further insight. 

Submit your conference presentation proposal as a Roundtable Discussion or Concurrent Session, including title, summary of the session, and interactive engagement.

All presentations are scheduled for a 75-minute duration. A soft deadline for submissions is December 15, 2018, allowing the Academy Team to review and accept presentations.

Presenters are also invited and encouraged to submit an article inspired by their presentation. These articles will be considered for publication on the Academy’s Blog and/or journal, LEADERSHIP.  Submit articles as a PDF document by March 11, 2019.
