We invite you to share your expertise by presenting at the 5th Annual CARSNet Conference on September 24-25, 2019! As you know, the conference is considered the premier authorizer conference in California showcasing best practices and timely strategies and tools to increase authorizer knowledge and effectiveness.

If you are interested in submitting a presentation idea, please complete a Presenter Application Form and return it to carsnet@acoe.org by June 30, 2019. Make sure to include your brief description (2-3 sentences). Confirmation letters will be going out in mid-July. Once the session details are confirmed you will receive the 2019 conference power point template to use.

Criteria for each breakout session:

  1. We are planning for break-out sessions to be 60 minutes in length. Please plan your presentation to include an opportunity for attendees to ask questions and share their experiences in the areas covered.
  2. Include an interactive element during your session (i.e. polling, group activity, etc.)
  3. Provide at least one useful hand-out (summary, template or tool)
  4. Presenters must agree to use current best practices and materials free from personal political views
