Organizing a preconference can seem overwhelming, especially to a first-time organizer. However, all you have to do is select the program and SPSP staff will take care of the rest (catering, a/v, registration, etc).
SPSP will begin accepting applications to host a preconference for the 2019 Convention in May of 2018. Those interested in hosting a preconference must provide general information about their preconference in an application for review by the convention committee.
Applications will be made available here in May. Organizers are strongly encouraged to fill out the entirety of the application. Since preconferences are limited in 2019 due to space, the information submitted in the application will be used to evaluate which preconferences are selected and which are not if space does not exist for all applications submitted.
Note: Due to space limitations, SPSP reserves the right to reduce the number of preconferences and only those submitted by the deadline of June 8, 2018 will be considered.
SPSP staff have worked hard to streamline the planning experience for organizers. SPSP’s planning and onsite logistics team handle all elements of logistics for preconferences – budgets, registration, food and beverage selection, room setups, AV, and posters.
After submission and acceptance of your preconference, SPSP staff will do the following:
Note: Please remember SPSP does not monitor, select, limit, or endorse any material presented in preconferences.
