ABA Annual Meeting 2020

Now Accepting Proposals for:

Deadline: May 31, 2019

Educational Forums

Forums are concurrently running sessions that provide in-depth education on specific topics. These sessions are 1.5, 2 or 4 hours in length. These may have target audiences or be multi-disciplinary in focus.


Interactive sessions moderated by experts in the field. These sessions are an hour and fifteen minutes and don’t require a formal presentation. Moderators are expected to prepare discussion topics and questions and participants are asked to come prepared to participate with their own practice successes, failures and questions. A flip chart is provided to capture key points.

SIG Sessions

SIG sessions that are requesting CEU credits, need to complete the full proposal by May 31. These should be completed by the SIG Chair or a designated representative of the SIG, please only submit on per SIG. If you are requesting a SIG stipend, there is a tab in the proposal form to submit this request. All SIG Stipend requests will be considered by the Membership Advisory Committee. Notification will be provided in mid-July.
