Update on Proposal Submissions

Dear Prospective Convention Presenters,

As you are aware, the 2021 annual NASP Convention is being migrated to a virtual format out of an abundance of caution due to the ongoing pandemic. This shift has been a huge pivot for everyone involved, particularly those persons responsible for planning the convention. As you can imagine, it is a dynamic situation unlike any we have encountered before. Thank you for your patience, grace, and flexibility as we work through the details.

The Convention Committee is working furiously to select the sessions for the convention program. This process had to be significantly adjusted for the virtual format. Here is how the program is coming together, based on the capacity of the virtual platform we have selected to use:

There will be a slate of live presentations, 60 and 90 minutes in length, that are being selected primarily from the workshop, documented session, and featured session list. Invitations for presenting these sessions on the live program will be sent by November 23. Presenters who had previously accepted workshop, documented session, or featured session presentations and who, unfortunately, cannot be included on the program will be notified by November 30.

There will be approximately 300 prerecorded “on demand” sessions. These 30-minute sessions will be drawn primarily from the paper, symposium, and mini-skills proposals. We hope to send information to the presenters by December 1.

There will be approximately 300 poster sessions. Posters will be visible to all attendees throughout the convention week. We hope to invite the poster presenters by December 1.

There will be a small number of Practitioner Conversation sessions. These will be live sessions conducted via Zoom. We hope to have the presenter invitations completed by December 1.
