Thinking of presenting for the NAGAP GEM Summit in San Francisco? This session will offer tips on writing an effective education session proposal, including time for questions. Come learn how to share your knowledge with other GEM professionals!
NAGAP is now accepting presentations for the 2021 Graduate Enrollment Management Summit next April in San Francisco.
If you have an innovative approach to a challenging GEM issue, consider submitting a proposal for presentation no later than September 21, 2020.
In addition to proposals geared to our entry and intermediate level participants, we are specifically looking for topic proposals that would be of interest to our expert-level attendees (10+ years in GEM).
There are four different formats for Summit education sessions: Presentations, Panels, Special Interest Forums, and Vendor Presentations. As you think about your area of interest or expertise, consider which format best aligns with your educational content, personal style, or comfort level.
Proposals should be generally aligned with the theme of the 2021 Graduate Enrollment Management Summit (GEM Reimagined) and focus on the various aspects of the graduate enrollment management life cycle from prospective students through alumni engagement.
We hope you will consider submitting a proposal for the 2021 Graduate Enrollment Management Summit, and we will see you in San Francisco!
