We invited phenomenal experts in the field to present at #SENIA2023. We also know that our SENIA members are some of the most knowledgeable professionals.

Would you like to present at SENIA? Are you interested in sharing with our audience some knowledge and strategies that fall into one of our strands?

Due to the fact that our participants come from all over the world, there is no live component to our presentations. Each presentation is recorded, so you will not be able to have break-out rooms or small group participation. Please read over our in depth presenter recording guidelines before submitting your proposal for a full understanding of the expectations.

Thank you for your interest. We can’t wait to read your proposal.


  • Submissions are due by May 18, 2023
  • Notification of acceptance sent by June 1, 2023.

Selection Criteria

The SENIA conference committee looks at all the proposals before making determinations

Some things they will be looking at are:

  • The workshop’s ability to reach a variety of audiences (beginner/intermediate/advanced) from different levels of education (elementary, middle, high, administrative)
  • The workshop aligns with one of the designated strands
    • Leading & Implementing Inclusive Systems
    • Supporting Identity, Diversity and Accessibility
    • Utilizing Strategies to Support Students
    • Amplifying Voices of Our Community Members
  • The workshop offers a unique perspective that complements the workshops on offer at SENIA 2022: The Inclusion Revolution
  • The workshop has an appropriate balance of theory and practice along with strategies participants can use immediately.
  • The workshop’s main focus is on content and support strategies.  Workshops that focus exclusively on selling a product will not be considered.

Thank you, again, for offering your expertise, time, and dedication to the SENIA 2022 Virtual Conference.
