AHEAD offers full webinar series every spring and fall, where members can select individual topics or subscribe to the entire series. There are also occasional short webinar series on a particular topic. AHEAD actively solicits ideas about webinar topics and presenters. In fact, the webinars that attendees most appreciate have always come from member suggestions—send us your idea for a webinar you could present! To discuss webinar presentation proposals, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
AHEAD Conference presentations
Every year, over a hundred of AHEAD’s members offer presentations on topics about which they have skills and expertise. This allows AHEAD to offer content that is immediately useful and relevant to a wide variety of schools, disability types, and professional roles. Member-to-member presentations are vital to sharing up-to-date knowledge and practices—please share what you know with your colleagues at our annual conference! In early fall a Request for Proposals is announced, with proposals due in late fall. Review and selection is done over the winter, with selection announcements typically made in February. Watch the AHEAD Member Community discussions for announcements. Review conference presentation proposal criteria and important deadlines.
