BCNA Advancing Naturopathic Medicine Conferences

Speaker Proposal Guidelines

Potential presenters are asked to submit workshop proposals electronically. Submissions are provided to the ANM selection committee and/or BCNA Board of Directors.

Lecture selections are made based on theme, cost, time constraints, applicability of workshop to delegates and the focus on health issues relevant to licensed naturopathic doctors. Special emphasis is given to lectures with a practical “take home” component, as opposed to just theory or research.

Framework

Please be as informative as possible, using the framework as follows:

Title
A title that clearly and briefly describes the lecture content is preferred.

Abstract
Please try to limit your abstract to 500 words or less.

Synopsis
If your proposal is accepted by the committee, we will craft a short synopsis for use on the web and in publications. If you would like to provide us with a synopsis it should be fewer than 300 words.

Learning Objectives
Provide three learning objectives of your lecture (and, if applicable, what participants will take away from the lecture for use in clinic).

Method
It will be assumed your lecture requires no additional equipment except for a microphone and PowerPoint projector. If there are any other requirements (e.g., flipcharts, overhead projector, manipulation table, etc.) please list them under this heading.

Expenses
All speakers receive complementary registration to the conference as well as conference meals. Additional expenses are accorded given the ANM budget. Please list your approximate expenses required as well as anticipated stipend.

Previous Presentation
